The Highwayman Narrative Poetry, Persuasive Writing &  Recounts
This four-week unit of work provides 20 lessons of English which follow on, one from the other, building to a grand finale for engaging with narrative poems, then persuasive writing and finally news writing.
Starting with an analysis of the poem, storyboarding, writing alternative endings and role playing characters.
We then move on to create a court scene and a one-week focus on persuasive writing before finishing with a one-week focus on news writing. There is lots of dressing up and fun lesson starters/games to grab your class's attention from the start.
I have perfected this planning through rigorous assessment over the past six years, adding resources along the way. This is literally 20+ hours of hard work and dedication to ensuring that you deliver an English lesson that children from 9 - 13 years oldf (dependent on ability) will really engage with and NEVER forget. If you are not happy with your purchase I will personally PayPal refund you the $5 you spend if you can explain why. All feedback welcomed!
