A Christmas unit of work based around the book by Alan Snow. The children analyse explanatory texts and extracts from the book before writing a page.
Dead link to missing PowerPoint refers to Sue Palmer's writing skeletons, buy it from her site - they&'re a fantastic resource!
I agree with everyone else - what a well thought-through plan which I definitely want to share with my Year 3/4 class. However, the absence of the powerpoint is a shame. If there is anyway at all that you could upload this, we would all be very grateful. Thanks for sharing the resource with us.
