Journey to Jo'burg whole text planning and resources for upper KS2 (6 weeks)
I have created a 6 week plan (17 lessons) of whole class reading for year 5 on the book ‘Journey to Jo’burg’ by Beverley Naidoo. This has taken me ages! I have included the lesson plans, Smart notebook slides and all the worksheets for starter activities and main independent activites. Each lesson focuses on a different content domain which are clearly labelled. I haven’t included a powerpoint for ‘reading football’ which is a resource from a fellow TES user, nor have I included a book review template which you can find on Twinkl. Any photos have been taken from the internet which I have used for different reading starters - I do not claim those to be my own. The resource would also be suitable for year 6. The resource is designed to be easy to use as the planning is for shared use across a cluster of schools, which is the purpose I have created it for. Do not purchase this resource if you can’t use Smart notebook as this is a huge proportion of the resource, with 141 slides. I hope someone finds it useful!
