The Egyptian Cinderella Pack contains a complete unit of work for Year 3/4, with full lesson plans and pupil resources based on the book ‘The Egyptian Cinderella’ by Shirley Climo.
The ten lessons in this English unit give children the opportunity to read and listen to the story of The Egyptian Cinderella a number of times in order to become familiar with the language and structure of the story.
In the first week, children will engage with the text through fun drama, discussion and debate activities to deepen their understanding of the story and they will have the opportunity to articulate ideas about the text using an increasingly varied vocabulary. There is a grammar focus on using comparative conjunctions, feelings words and action verbs as well as a chance to develop thesaurus skills. In the second week, pupils will plan their own story and they will draft, edit and present their final narrative.
The English objectives covered are:
-To compare different versions of a traditional story
-To predict what might happen in a story
-To use comparative conjunctions
-To use a thesaurus to improve writing
-To infer how a character feels
-To use feelings words
-To identify how verbs can create an action section
-To take part in a class debate
-To make a story plan
-To write my own narrative
-To edit my writing
-To make decisions about how to present my writing
