I have taught this unit a few times to different classes - Year 3, Year 3/4 and Year 2/3. It can be adapted easily. The book is fabulous and the imaginative/descriptive writing is always superb as the children get a lot from the drama activities. One lesson observation received an Outstanding. The resources/writing frames mentioned in planning are here, too. Enjoy!

    My class of yr 5/6 are really enjoying The Minpins and I have taken bits and pieces from your planning to make it relevant. I work in a special needs school with mainly ASD children. Thank you!!!
