This is the whole 3 weeks of planning + first week of accompanying resources for a unit focusing on Ted Hughes's 'The Iron Man.' The unit focuses on using descriptive language (including fronted adverbials for position, time etc) Each lesson begins with an interactive SPAG / Sentence starter to reinforce and practice basic sentence writing skills. These are NOT all my own ideas (about 50/50) but the cost is for putting it together into a cohesive and 'ready-to'teach' unit of work. The resources for weeks 2 and 3 will also be available at a reduced cost. The resources are clearly labelled which should help you in working out which resource is for which lesson, any problems let me know. You will need Smart Notebook to access the presentations.
2 extracts from "The Iron Man" by Ted Hughes, which can be used for guided reading or comprehension.
Also attached is a prediction sheet, where children need to make sensible guesses as to who the Iron Man is before reading on.
A literacy lesson that involves the use of multimedia and is aimed at developing children's use of similies. Ths resource includes a powerpoint which features an extract from The Iron man and a video clip from the film, the Iron Giant, differentiated
