Mary Seacole - Year 2 Literacy 5 lesson plan
This is a 5 lesson Literacy unit all about Mary Seacole. The plan is aimed at year 2 and gives details of the year 2 curriculum objectives covered. The children develop reading comprehension, writing, editing and SPaG skills during the unit.







All five lessons include a SPaG starter which is always linked to Mary Seacole.







The main activity in lesson 1 is a non-fiction reading comprehension, which helps children to learn about Mary. It is laid out in a SATs style format, containing similar questions to a SATs paper and is differentiated 3 ways.







The main activity in lesson 2 is a fictional letter comprehension, written from the point of view of a soldier about Mary Seacole. Again it is in a SATs style and is again differentiated 3 ways.







Lesson 3 allows children to gather vocabulary through drama and written activities. Lessons 4 and 5 allow children to write and edit their own letters as a soldier about Mary Seacole.







All resources are included that will be needed for the lessons.
