Alma - descriptive writing and discussion (Year 5)

This is a complete unit of work focusing on the use of the short video - Alma. This is aimed at an upper Year 5 class or early Year 6 class.

It contains 6 lessons focusing on a descriptive writing element to the story, whereby the children develop a story focusing on setting; relative and subordinate clauses; cohesive devices; colons and semi-colons and then a descriptive recount and edit.

The additional three lessons focus on discussion and persuasive writing. However the third and final lesson can be split into two depending on the time allowed for the lesson and the ability of the children.

All planning is included as well as the resources and supporting resources necessary to conduct the lessons and activities.
