Beowulf fiction unit, Beowulf journalistic style unit and Beowulf sentence construction

Beowulf fiction unit, Beowulf journalistic style unit and Beowulf sentence construction

I’ll admit it! I’m a bit obsessed with ‘Beowulf’. I do have a good reason: it inspires great writing. You are buying: a mega three week fiction writing unit; a four/five session journalistic style unit; a sentence grammar activity that I use frequently - it can be adapted for any text and is worth revisiting often. Of course, they are all strictly ‘Beowulf’ themed. Get involved - you’ll soon get the Beowulf bug.

Hero Journalism, Beowulf, Greater Depth Writing, Year 5/6, Newspaper Reports, Journalistic Style

Hero Journalism, Beowulf, Greater Depth Writing, Year 5/6, Newspaper Reports, Journalistic Style

Reading comprehension! Drawing! Drama! High quality writing! Newspaper reports! These sessions give children an opportunity to produce ‘greater depth non-fiction writing’ using a fiction context - no research required! Available in Word and PDF. Through these sessions, children will explore 3 news reports about heroes; generate their own toolkits; strip a fiction text (Beowulf) back to its bare bones; create captions and draw scenes from the story; take part in drama activities and finally write news reports using a consistent style and appropriate register. This resource contains four fully resourced sessions (you need nothing else!) pitched at middle and high attaining Year 5 and Year 6 writers. Just work through the 12 page pack with your pupils, and then set them loose on their own news reports - they’ll be ready! It is helpful (though not essential) if the children have previously explored the story of Beowulf - I have written a fully resourced unit that you can purchase from my store. If they have not heard the story before, allow a little extra time to get familiar with the text (included). I ran these four sessions over a day, as a one day writing workshop. It would work equally well as four/five sessions across a week, depending on the speed of the class/group. The outcomes were fantastic and the children enjoyed the sessions. I have also included a bank of good examples from children working at age related expectation (ARE) and some children moving into greater depth - of course these are my judgements - feel free to disagree! These may be useful to look at with your class. Enjoy!

World War One Reading: HOW THE WAR WAS WON. Comprehension Package.

2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War One. This collection of four reading comprehensions, aimed at 10-14 year olds, tests children’s comprehension, retrieval, inference and deduction skills through a range of informative and enlightening texts. It will also promote reflective and engaging classroom discussion as children discover more about this important chapter in the world’s history. For this reason, it is ideal for research projects.

America declares war: How America moved from neutrality to war; and how their actions were crucial in securing an Allied victory. The Armistice: The world celebrates as the peace treaty is signed in a railway carriage – but the war rumbles on right until the bitter end.
