These activities are suited to KS2 for guided reading sessions or for use in English lessons to show response to the text. 4 different worksheets with boxes for ‘wonder’, ‘observe’ and ‘infer’ (the 4 images are different ones from the book) Wonder- Children write questions that come to mind when they look at the image Observe - What can they see - be specific, expand your ideas, explain clearly Infer- Children make inferences using clues from the image 1 worksheet comparing an image of a child from the past with the boy in the story. Encouraging children’s use of inference and also to encourage them to explore the differences between the characters. I will be uploading planning and resources for my entire Flotsam unit shortly.

A 3 week unit of work based around the story of Chinese New Year. There are lots of opportunities here for Cross-Curricular links. We are using this unit as part of our topic ‘Around the World’.

It is easily shortened and adapted for 2 weeks or you could pick and choose activities to fit a week of planning. We are ending with a Chinese New Year party! There are lots of other resources easily available to accompany this unit across the curriculum from Twinkl, Mrs Mactivity and other similar sites. I have not included flipcharts for this unit but I have included success criteria grids, any activity proformas to use and a story for retelling. The grammar lessons that are built into the unit are subject to change depending on your class’s needs and the resources available in your classroom, therefore the activities are just a suggestion. Hope you find this useful!
