About this unit: This is a ten-lesson unit of English work based on the reading and writing of a non-chronological report. It is intended for Lower Key Stage 2. This unit follows the 2014 National Curriculum objectives which are outlined below. The English objectives covered by this unit are highlighted in yellow. The ten lessons in this unit allow children to explore, discuss and understand a non-chronological report. During the first week, children will explore a non-chronological report based on Great Barrier Reef. Through guided and shared activities children will write their own version of this text ensuring they have included the correct language and organisational features. In the second week, children will carry out their own research into the Whitsunday Islands. Children will then apply what they have learned in the first week and plan, write and edit a non-chronological report based on the Whitsunday Islands and then they will write a non-chronological report independently. What is included? • A sheet with the National Curriculum English objectives for Y3/4 which are highlighted to help track and assess the progress of the class; to track coverage of the English curriculum and to show what objectives the unit covers. • NEW Printable child-friendly learning objectives for children’s books. • Non-chronological report planning for 10 days including possible science and geography cross-curricular links. • NEW Now includes a PowerPoint containing the lesson structure and learning activities for all 10 lessons of the unit which can be presented to the children. The PowerPoint design and content can be adjusted to suit the needs of a class. • A non-chronological report about the Great Barrier Reef which includes details of the general location of the Great Barrier Reef; details about what the Great Barrier Reef is made from; animals found at the Great Barrier Reef and threats faced by the Great Barrier Reef. • A non-chronological report about the Great Barrier Reef that has been simplified for lower-achieving children. • A glossary for the non-chronological report about the Great Barrier Reef. • Boxing-up plan for the non-chronological report about the Great Barrier Reef (differentiated on two levels but writing frame included for lower-achieving children). • Success Criteria for non-chronological reports (differentiated on three levels). • Non-chronological report about the Great Barrier Reef writing frame for lower-achieving children. • Boxing-up plan for research into the Whitsunday Islands (differentiated on three levels).
