Vocabulary, Retrieval, Clarification, Inference, Prediction and Summarising are covered in this unit. This book links well to cross-curricular units such as the Romans or earthquakes and volcanoes. Travel back in time to experience the impact of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the Roman Empire.
In this pack you will find 3 x whole class lessons: 2 fiction and 1 non-fiction (an hour long focus – or you can split it into separate days); an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary focus; full planning using the KS2 Reading Domains; and the task sheets (scaffolded twice) all ready to print. The original book is needed to complete the unit.
