A whole term’s English planning linked to the book ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’ (Winner of the Blue Peter Best Story Award 2019) by Onjali Rauf. 32 lessons in total, all with SMART Notebook screens, task sheets and header sheets. There are a total of 191 SMART Notebook screens (in one file) and each lesson is clearly marked along with which lesson each chapter should be read to aid and link to the learning. This planning includes: writing a recount, writing a persuasive letter, SATs style comprehension questions, writing a narrative, descriptive writing, drama, writing an information text and also writing a newspaper report. It will also educate and inform the children of a very current real problem that others in the world face - the plight of the refugee. Using this book will expand their understanding of the world and help them to empathise and appreciate what some of the other children in school may have gone through. Even if you don’t need this scheme of work, I would highly recommend the book to share with the class.
