Recount- Newspaper Report- Harry Potter

(0)
This unit of work was designed by two teachers, one a writing moderator and literacy lead, still practising in year 6. Collaborative learning is a key aspect to building the foundations of our work so there are opportunities for mixed ability seating whether you set or not. This unit of work is to designed to push writers towards the expected standard and beyond whilst using Harry Potter and the Philosophers’ Stone. The unit is of a recount focus in the form of a newspaper report which should give the child an opportunity to describe key events in detail. The children will have free choice of events happening in Harry Potter’s first year at Hogwarts. The events range from the troll break in to winning the house cup. Children are given the opportunity to use a range of elements from the Teacher Assessment Framework. In this piece there is the opportunity to showcase almost all the elements: speech (using dialect for more advanced writers), reported and direct speech, a range of cohesive devices, opportunities for higher-level punctuation, embedded clauses, the use of first person, the use of multiple tenses, distinguishing between levels of formality and a range of clause structures. The unit provides a model which can be annotated and amended to suit all abilities. As well as the model, we have created a template in which your children can write on or if you choose to they can set it out in their own way. Overall this unit gives the user ample opportunities to refine skills, assess writing (self, peer or teacher), draft, edit and up level writing.

Nelson Boles' 'Little Boat' animation is surprisingly powerful - taking a simple boat through a range of settings which sees it become more and more damaged by human life, storms and war, but with a surprising and heartwarming ending. This Literacy lesson challenges children to image they are the boat themselves and recount it's story in the first person, describing what it can see, but also what happens to it, and its consequential feelings. Lesson pack includes writing plan for children and full lesson notebook! Enjoy!

Collaborative learning is a key aspect to building the foundations of our work so there are opportunities for mixed ability seating whether you set or not. This unit of work is to designed to push writers towards the expected standard and beyond whilst using Harry Potter and the Philosophers’ Stone. The unit is of a recount focus which should give the child an opportunity to delve into the emotions of Harry Potter prior to him receiving his acceptance letter to Hogwarts. Children are given the opportunity to use a range of elements from the Teacher Assessment Framework. In this piece there is the opportunity to showcase almost all the elements: switch genres if greater depth, a range of cohesive devices, opportunities for higher-level punctuation, use informal and formal language, an appropriate diary format and a range of clause structures. The unit provides a model which can be annotated and amended to suit all abilities. As well as the model, we have created a diary booklet which you can write on to add a bit of wow to your writing. If you are pushing your children to switch genres withing their writing - if they are pushing to exceed the expectations- then there is paper to write the letter on. There is a moderators checklist for teachers to use to compare to the framework and a self assessment checklist for children to use and evidence elements of the success criteria which they have used in their writing.

English / Literacy: Recount Writing Activity - Planet Unknown

Planet Unknown is a brilliant futuristic animation about a two Space Rovers, sent to find potential inhabitable planets using 'nSeed' pods to detect the possibility of growing plants. In the story, the two Rovers are undertaking their mission, but suddenly find themselves battling through an asteroid shower. This resource is two lessons; the first gets children to brainstorm descriptive language for the two characters and the setting, while the second is the writing recount of events from the film. The two objectives are as follows: 1) To describe a film setting and its characters 2) To be able to recount a film as a written story These are each supported by specific success criteria to aid children's writing. This pack includes a Smartboard presentation with detailed slides for both lessons, a planning worksheet for lesson one, and screenshots JPEGs of the characters and the setting It can easily be adapted for different KS2 year groups and a particular skill focus, e.g. tense, sentence starters, grammar or vocab. I have kept it as a general recount focus involving all skills.

I love teaching newspaper recounts, particularly with an imaginative twist! We spent the first week studying examples of good quality recounts; developing the necessary language and organisational skills and researching a natural disaster, which they then wrote about. The following week, we turned the classroom into a newsroom and wrote recounts on fairy tale characters eg. Goldilocks as a thief! I did it as an observed lesson and we had a great time! It's suitable for Year 5 or Year 6 and could be used to tie in to environmental issues/climate. I've included planning, flipcharts using Activ Inspire and resources.
