Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Reception in a zip file based on Grahame Baker-Smith’s ‘Leon and the Place Between’ book.

This text is designed to be used as part of a whole school unit to spread the magic of the circus across the whole school as a leap into the Autumn Term.

In this pack you will find 2 x whole class lessons to split over several sessions, an editable PowerPoint presentation and the word document texts all ready to print. These resources will show evidence for a number of oral reading comprehension skills at different abilities. These lessons will hopefully help to assess the early reading skills of the class.

You will need to purchase the book to complete this unit. Please note that for our 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.

Whole Class Reading units for this text are also available for the other primary year groups.
