Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Reception in a zip file based on Rod Campbell’s ‘Dear Zoo’ book.

In this pack you will find 2 x whole class lessons (an hour-long for each – or you can split them); an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary, retrieval, sequencing, inference and prediction focus; planning; scaffolded task sheets to allow all children to access; and the word documents – all ready to print.

You will need to purchase the book to complete this unit. Please note that for our EYFS and KS1 units, we provide a text extract that differs from the actual book. It is against copyright to take and reproduce the text/pictures directly from a published book, so we always try to use our texts for the units based on the original. We always recommend that teachers have at least one copy of the book and read the original text with their pupils, then switch to the amended version that is based on the original.
