UKS2 Literacy - Who is the Greatest Basketball Player?  Discussion Based Writing Unit

This is a discussion based writing unit about who is the greatest basketball player of the modern era. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each.

The first lesson involves students retrieving facts from informational texts about Michael Jordan, LeBron James and Stephen Curry, and writing these onto the included fact sheet. In the second lesson students need to use these facts to write three to four paragraphs about the individual players. In the third lesson students need to use prompt sheets to write up an introduction and a conclusion. In the final lesson your class will need to check their draft paragraphs for mistakes before writing up their work on a neat copy using the template provided.

NO PREP is needed!

Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
