Year 4 Explanation Unit
This unit uses the picture books 'How to catch a star&' and the &';Dudley' book. We explored the writing style of Roger McGough whilst learning an oral explantion of how a cat feeding machine works. The final writing piece using the picture book &'How to catch a star&'; to write an explanation of their own star catching machine. I loved teaching this unit and the children really enjoyed it too. They kept telling me so and I their writing was inspired and fantastic. Hope this helps to liven up this unit!
