The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas Scheme

This Scheme of work has 28 literature lessons that are fully resources and then another 14 language lessons that include looking at specific extracts and poetry. Every lesson starts with a ‘Do-Now’ activity based on KS2 SPAG for recall. Each lesson also has a slide for both lesson objecitves and outcomes as well as key words. I have included some frayer models within lessons and some low stake quizzes. The GAP lessons have very little as it depends on how pupils have preformed.
