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 193 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.
(Update 19/5/2020 - In response to many requests, I have converted the SMART Notebook screens to Powerpoint, so there is also a 193 page Powerpoint presentation included for the teaching sequence.)
This teaching sequence and planning will require the children to complete the following tasks over the 32 lessons:
- writing a recount
- writing a persuasive letter
- answering SATs style comprehension questions
- writing a narrative
- descriptive writing
- drama session
- writing an information text
- writing a newspaper report
I have also included some examples of work for some lessons.
This topic 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.
It's good to leave some feedback.
Something went wrong, please try again later.
Do you have the model text or WAGOLL for the refugee story please? Thank you
I've uploaded a work example for this as requested. Enjoy the teaching!
A brilliant resource - thank you! Much better and more user friendly than the Rising Stars plan that we were using last year.
Fantastic resource. Would highly recommend.
An amazing resource. Thank you for sharing it.
Thank you for your kind words, I hope that you and your class enjoy the book.
Really great resource - adapted slightly as I went along but fantastic ideas and appreciated it massively. Love that you converted the SMART to PowerPoint too - could the same be done for your Explorers resource?
Thank you for your kind words, I'm glad that you enjoyed the teaching ideas. I've had a few requests for the Explorer SMART screens to be converted to Powerpoint so I'll try and sort that out over half-term.
21/10/2020 Update - I have completed converting the SMART Notebook files so there are now Powerpoint screens for each lesson included as requested.
