*Note to my previous customers: This is the original lesson which I adapted for the 'New Year Short Story Writing Lesson'. The New Year version has also been available in my TES shop for some time, so please check that you haven't already bought it!
The topic is writing a short story with a school theme. The teaching PowerPoint contains a story opening for the class to read and analyse, followed by an independent writing task, in which the children should continue and complete the story. Opportunities for the children to plan their ideas are also built in, allowing for the activity to be extended over 2 sessions.
In addition, there is an optional challenge activity contained in the PowerPoint, as well as writing support sheets for any children that require them. All planning is also included in the pack.
The flexibility of the lesson means that I have been able to use it in Years 3/4 and in Years 5/6.
• Teacher PowerPoint presentation (with challenge task included)
• Two differentiated writing support sheets (lower and middle ability)
• Full planning grid, linked to English curriculum
