I wrote this biography about Emmeline as an example for my year class. We were completing a unit about the Suffragettes and they were writing a biography about Emmeline. This was also really good for building up their subject knowledge about her.

Year 6 reading  The Secret Garden 9 lessons

Year 6 reading The Secret Garden 9 lessons

(0)
This is a unit of lessons that I did with my class in whole class guided reading lessons involving lots of SATs skills (e.g. the dreaded 3 mark questions!). Lessons are differentiated for LA, MA and HA and use the Viper skills. I usually encourage my class to circle the VIPER skills they think they were using that lesson. I took about three-four weeks to teach this. I had two lessons in my books each week and spent the other lessons reading the chapters which are sometimes quite long. It was a very good text to expose my class to more complicated language and prepare them so potentially a complicated SATs text.

3 mark questions reading SATs revision 5 lessons

(0)
These are 4 lessons that I did with my year 6 class using chapter 1,2 and 3 of The Secret Garden; this book has just the right amount of complex vocabulary to prepare your class for a potentially challenging text in the SATs. My class were finding answering the 3 mark questions particularly challenging. The first lesson involves reading chapter (you don’t have to finish it) and discussing Mary Lennox’s chilhood. We looked at the technique for answering 3 mark questions using Point, Evidence and Explain to answer a 3 mark question about her childhood. In the second lesson, we finished chapter 1 and read some of 2. We looked at answering the tricky ‘Yes’ ‘No’ ‘Maybe’ questions in the SATs where the children must properly explain and give their opinions to back up their choice. The third lesson is also based on chapter 2 and involves less teacher input and more questions involving skills they have learnt. It has a separate group of retrieval questions for your lower readers. The final lesson is on ‘impressions’ that certain words from chapter 3 can give the reader . Lesson 4 and 5 involve explanation to justify inferences and another ‘yes’ ‘no’ ‘maybe’ questions about Archibald Craven’s garden.

Year 6 reading comprehension: The Explorer

I gave this as reading homework to my year 6 class for three weeks -it is three comprehensions on chapter 1,2 and 3 of the book. The main reason was to encourage them to read the book (The Explorer) which I have in our class reading corner. The questions involved a variety of the reading skills that come up in SATs papers so good practise! I have included the answers for each question at the bottom of the page to make marking quicker. I have also included the text.

Reading comprehensions (15 of them!)

(0)
Here are 15 reading comprehensions that I gave my year 6 class for their Autumn Term homework. I chose these books because they are in our reading corner and I wanted to encourage the children to read them by giving them a little taster. The Reading Comprehensions are about or the books are: ‘The Explorer’ by KatherineRundell (3 of them ) ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo (2 of them ) ‘The Secret Garden’ by Frances Hogson Burnett ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit’ by Judith Kerr ‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott ‘A Monster Calls’ by Patrick Ness. The Importance of Reading (to encourage them to read!) Malala Yousafzai life story Marcus Rashford life story Beyonce life story Emma Raducanu life story The reading comprehensions are mostly suited for MAs and HAs but could definitely be given to some of your higher LAs. The style of questions involve a range of skills that come up in SATs papers and I have also included the answers at the bottom of each document to make it quicker to mark.

Some Places More Than Others writing unit

(0)
This is a writing unit that is based on the book by Renee Watson which I taught to my year 6 class. The unit contains 21 lessons but can be extended or condensed according to the writing ability or speed of your class. I have typed out chapter 1 and 2 onto the slides but you will need a copy of the book prior to starting this unit. Each lesson begins with a grammar starter and many of the lessons contain differentiation and detailed notes. The entire unit is on a PowerPoint including printable worksheets. PERFECT FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH or for the end of year 6 (summer term) before they start secondary school. The writing unit contains diary entries, recounts, writing and analysing poetry and writing recipes.
The Suffragettes: The Battle for Equality writing sequence

The Suffragettes: The Battle for Equality writing sequence

(1)
This is a unit of 15 lessons, which can be condensed or extended depending on the confidence of the class, that is based on the amazing book ‘Suffragettes: The Battle for Equality’ by David Roberts. I planned and resourced this unit for my Year 6 class. My class absolutely loved learning about the Suffragettes -especially as extreme activism has been in the news so much recently! You will need to buy a copy of the book. The unit consists of two ‘big writes’. A formal letter to a Prime Minister and a short story/recount about the day that the Suffragettes interrupted a parliamentary meeting. The lessons that lead up to the ‘big writes’ all teach the class the necessary grammatical elements and writing features that they can include in their writing. Each lesson has a grammar starter and grammar imbedded into it for SATs revision. Many of the lessons have differentiation for your lower attaining writers and suggestions for how to challenge your more confident writers. I have included reading comprehensions which can be completed in your Reading lessons or for homework if you don’t have time to get through all the reading in class. This unit can be continued after with a biography about Emmeline Pankhurst or Millicent Fawcett.
