A short unit of writing inspired by an image from the Christmas Narrative 'Coming Home' by Michael Morpurgo (This years Waitrose Advert) featuring a Robin which migrates in search of food but faces dangers along the way. The unit of work uses the image to inspire children to learn about the migration of two species of migrating bird over the Winter period in Great Britain and understand their amazing journeys. Once the children have learnt about migration and facts about each bird, they can take notes and create an information page about their chosen bird. The resource pack includes: -a short powerpoint for the teaching unit (staring with an image of migrating birds from the book) -Facts sheet to cut up and give to children to read and present to others around the class (JIGSAW) (mixture of compound sentences and complex using cordinating and, or, but subordinating conjunctions when because that if ) -student note taking sheets for both species of bird 2 student templates for an information page about chosen Migrating bird I have trialled this with my own class and it has produced high quality information writing (a majority of which is at Greater Depth level) and the children were very interested about bird migration. Writing KPIs Cover: Subordinating and Cordinationg conjunctions Writing Statements Writing Questions Writing a range of sentence types Selecting relevant content Possible futher tasks: create bird seed balls (following and writing instructions) to provide food for the migrating birds over the winter)
