Flying Fergus One - writing project to accompany whole class reading of the novel
Lesson plans for a whole class study of Flying Fergus One: The Best Birthday Bike by Chris Hoy.

A series of seven lessons designed to follow whole class reading of the novel.

The lessons guide the class to create a main character, secondary characters, a 'real world' setting, an 'imaginary world' setting, and secondary characters who live in the imaginary world. The children then use this work to write two action stories; one in the real world and one in their imaginary world.

Each lesson plan includes suggestions for differentiation, starter activities, a main lesson description and a plenary activity. Relevant first and second level Curriculum for Excellence (Scotland) experiences and outcomes are also specified for each lesson.

Two worksheets are also included.

The lessons are suitable for Primary 3 to 5 classes (Scotland).

Suitable for late KS1 and early KS2 classes (England).
