A 7 week unit of mid term planning for Non-Chronological reports based on the 5 senses. The model text is an adapted version of The Tree Giant by Pie Corbett and focuses on grammatical structures as well as vocabulary activities and of course it follows the structure of T4W throughout. I’ve included the planning itself which is based on 4 lessons per week except for a couple of 3 day weeks which were following my own schedule. It might be important to note that I designed this for my International School and so it may need some editing to meet criteria for UK schools. Also included is the model text I created to work from.
