'Boy 87' Refugee Crisis English Lesson Planning UKS2

(0)
Set in an unnamed country, this is a timely and important book, which illuminates the realities of life as a refugee. The first-person narration simply but powerfully conveys Shif’s terror at the violence and cruelty he encounters, as well as his sense of loss. The horrors he is escaping are all too real, but this is ultimately a story about the power of kindness and the strength of the human spirit. This six-week English unit of work has been written for Years 5 and 6 (aged 9-11). It contains 30 x 1 hour English lesson plans, which include differentiated, engaging activities and top teaching tips. The scheme includes all the resources you will need ready for you to print off including differentiated activities, success criteria, WAGOLLs (writing models) and word mats. During the unit many vocabulary and grammar techniques are covered: emotive and figurative language; semicolons, colons and dashes; and cohesive devises. The children will have regular shorter writing tasks such as letter writing from the main character to his little sister, a recount and free verse poetry. The children will also have a longer writing task (a biography of the main character) to embed their grammar learning. If that wasn’t enough, our scheme includes beautiful hand-drawn images and bespoke teaching videos to engage your children further. This heart-wrenching and uplifting book will stay with you and your class forever. *Please note that this is week 1 of the 6-week scheme. * Pushkin Children’s Books, author - Ele Fountain, cover designer - Katie Everson

Diversity: ‘Children of the Quicksands’ English Scheme of Work UKS2 Week 1

(0)
Efua Traoré wrote ‘Children of the Quicksands’: a thrilling adventure story set in Nigeria filled with magic, myths, legends, goddesses, culture, music, courage, pride and friendship. Teaching From Text absolutely loved writing this six-week scheme of work to accompany Efua Traoré’s book, ‘Children of the Quicksands’. This download is Week 1 from the scheme. The full six-week scheme of work has followed the DfE’s June 2021 guidance by creating plans and resources which encourage the children to complete shorter writing tasks to allow pupils to focus on sentence structure. Throughout the 30 English lessons, the children will be completely immersed in the rich and challenging text! They will get to know the characters, setting and storyline through grammar activities such as expanded noun phrases; relative clauses; commas, dashes and brackets to indicate parenthesis; modal verbs and adverbs to indicate degrees of possibility and learning about active and passive verbs. Their lessons will be engaging and varied including drama, links to art and a debate. Alongside shorter writing tasks, the children will apply their grammar skills in a letter from the main character to her mother and a persuasive argument based around an emotive decision in the book. As with all our schemes of work, our resources are fully differentiated, illustrated with hand-drawn images of the incredible characters, all lesson plans are detailed (but easy to follow) and include bespoke teaching videos using themes and characters from the book to help you teach tricky grammar concepts.

Mystery and Suspense English Scheme of Work LKS2 Week 1

(0)
‘Peril at the Bake Off ‘ by Ruth Quayle is the perfect mix of humour, suspense and mystery to appeal to all young readers. The story follows Joe, Pip and Tom during their summer stay with their Granny in the crime-filled village of Muddlemoor. Thank goodness the trio came to stay so they could solve the mystery, which surrounded their Granny and the village’s very important Bake Off competition! This is WEEK 1 of a six-week unit of work which has been written for Year 3 and 4 children (ages 7-9). It includes 30 x 1 hours lesson plans, differentiated resources, engaging hand-drawn images, bespoke teaching videos, high quality example texts, word mats, drama opportunities and success criteria. As all of this is included within the scheme, which only leaves the printing of resources for you to do! It is that simple – the scheme is ready to pick up and use for an entire term! During the six-week unit, the children will learn an array of grammar skills directly from the National Curriculum objectives: conjunctions of time, adverbs of manner, imperative verbs and how to correctly punctuate direct speech. The scheme also includes objectives from the reading curriculum and has many drama opportunities for the children to develop their speaking and listening skills. There are two main writing outcomes for the scheme of work (including lots of smaller tasks in between). The first is an instruction text - where the children get to make delicious cakes and then write a recipe for them. The second is a mystery narrative. There are many high quality WAGOLLs (What a Good One looks Like) included in the scheme. The children use the WAGOLLs to base their own writing on. During the unit, the children will learn about the features of a mystery genre and conclude the six-week period by writing their own predictive narrative about what happens to the main characters in the story.
