Age 10-11- Non-chronological Report Grouping Lesson 3

(0)
This is the third lesson in a unit based on a non-chronological report on Mars. In this lesson we look at the text level features of a non-chronological report and group planet information in preparation for children to write their own report at the end of the unit. It is aimed at children at an age 10-11 level (Year 6 in England and Wales). Visit here to see the earlier and future lessons in the unit. A PowerPoint provides structure to the lesson with teacher and learner resources provided. An on-line version of the lesson is available to view here. The lesson’s context revolves around a mission to Mars, an encounter with aliens and a hasty escape to return home. On the return journey home, a transmission about a new planet is received. This transmission needs to be turned into a grouped notes to report on the planet for mission control. Three short animations and/or images provide pre-lesson preparation (if required) to set up the context. Another two animations and/or images then continue the storyline. Animations are linked if available. There is a lesson plan which includes: • suggested links to the Welsh, English, Northern Irish, Republic of Ireland and Australian curriculums; • notes to provide lesson options and context/storyline information; • optional pre-lesson preparation; • starter, main, groups and plenary sections with suggested timings (please change depending on your class); • sections of the lesson linked to Blooms taxonomy (see www.teachingalive.co.uk for more info.); • talk time suggestions; • a PowerPoint presentation to support teaching; • differentiated group activities with an extra idea for early finishers; • consideration of, and reference to, different learning styles; and • independent activities that are planned to aim to allow the teacher to support or extend an assessment group within the lesson. We aim to provide detailed and thorough planning, so there will be more information, examples and differentiation in the planning than are needed, and changes may need to be made depending on your class.
