MASSIVE RESOURCE ALERT! NOT ALL VISIBLE IN PREVIEW! This is a creatively planned and comprehensively resourced 3 week unit on myth writing. It is pitched at Year 4, but it would work equally well in Year 5 or 6 (please see the key skills covered below). For most sessions, there are resources to extend high attainers and resources to support SEN learners. This unit is ready to go!
Three weeks of differentiated resources is a very large body of work, so YOU CANNOT SEE IT ALL IN THE PREVIEW (TES has a limit on the number of resources in the preview). When you buy, you will be able to download a zip folder organised into weeks and then into individual lessons. This will enable you to navigate your way through the plan and related resources with ease. All resources are PowerPoint and Word, so you will have no issues opening anything.
There are many, many resources included. Here are a few key examples:
model text (short and long versions) and a story map;
cold task/assessment task;
reading comprehension activities;
noun phrase activities;
fronted adverbial activities;
idea gather resources;
peer assessment resources;
and many more!
The key objectives covered repeatedly throughout the unit are:
• increasing their familiarity with a wide range of books, including myths and legends, and retelling some of these orally
• asking questions to improve their understanding of a text
• drawing inferences such as inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions, and justifying inferences with evidence
• I can use a wide range of subordinating conjunctions (when, if, because, although)
• I understand the term ‘adverbial’ and I can use fronted adverbials (with a comma)
• I can choose a variety of nouns and pronouns (to avoid repetition)
• discussing writing similar to that which they are planning to write in order to understand and learn from its structure, vocabulary and grammar
• organising paragraphs around a theme
Evaluate and edit by:
• assessing the effectiveness of their own and others’ writing and suggesting improvements
These have been broken down and written in ‘child speak’ within the planning.
