A whole term’s English planning linked to the book ‘The Explorer’ (Winner of the Children’s Book Prize Winner of the Costa Children’s Book Award 2017) by Katherine Rundell.
Ideal for Year 4, Year 5 or Year 6 children.
30 lessons in total, all with SMART Notebook screens, task sheets and header sheets.
There are a total of 143 SMART Notebook screens and each lesson is clearly marked along with which lesson each chapter should be read to aid and link to the learning. (Update - I have split the SMART Notebook screens over four files to reduce the size and make it easier to download.)
(Update 21/10/2020 - In response to many requests, I have converted the SMART Notebook screens to Powerpoint, so there are also 174 Powerpoint presentation pages included for the teaching sequence across four files.)
This planning includes:
- Writing a narrative
- Writing a persuasive letter
- SATs style comprehension questions
- Journal writing
- Writing an information text
- Recording a radio broadcast
This book and planning link well with topic work on South America, Brazil, the Amazon rainforest and the Yanomami indigenious tribe. It will also educate and inform the children of a very current real problem that others in the world face - the destruction of the rainforest.
