Short Stories (Horror) - 'Voodoo' and 'Hitchhiker'
The purpose of the unit is to firstly engage the pupils’ interest in, and enjoyment of, reading, whilst giving teachers the opportunity to assess the pupils reading and writing skills. The unit is differentiated (and uploaded) according to text, with each short story aimed at a different reading age. For copyright reasons I have not uploaded any of the short stories, but they can easily be bought or downloaded from the internet.
