This popular pack is based on the version of Beowulf by Rob Lloyd Jones (Usborne Young Reading).

This ten-lesson English unit of work is based on the 2014 National Curriculum for Year 3 and 4.

In the first week, pupils will engage imaginatively with the story of Beowulf through drama, discussion and a series of creative activities based on the text.

There is also a SPAG focus on using powerful verbs, expanding noun phrases, using superlatives and placing commas in lists. Pupils will also have the opportunity to develop their inference skills. In the second week, pupils will use drama to develop ideas and extend their vocabulary. They will then plan their own hero myth and have the opportunity to draft and edit their stories before presenting them to an audience. The literacy objectives covered in this unit are: To create a mythical character To use superlatives To describe contrasting settings To use ‘power-of-3’ to expand noun phrases To use powerful verbs To draw inferences from details in a text To use ‘show-not-tell’ as a writing technique To describe how tension builds in a story structure To create tension in my writing To prepare a group performance To identify conventions in mythical literature To make a plan for my writing To write my own hero myth To find words in a dictionary To organise paragraphs around a theme To edit and evaluate my writing To present my story to an audience SPECIAL OFFER: New TES buyers can use code OUTSTANDINGOCT at checkout to download this resource for free!

Ancient Egypt Scheme of Work (plus resources)

This is a set of plans for an Ancient Egypt unit. It's taught in Year 4 at our school. I've uploaded as much of the resources and plans that I can without infringing on copywrite - I've had to leave out various videos (which can be purchased/replaced with something – lots were from a ‘What the Ancients did for us’ series). I've also left a few lessons blank where I've directly used plans/resources from a subscription website called www.keystagehistory.com. It's an excellent website which requires a yearly subscription. Hope you find these useful! Enjoy!
