UKS2 Whole Class Reading The Story Shop: Stories for Literacy (Myth and Legend)


Based on two texts from this collection: a myth and a legend.

SKU: TTH256TSS Categories: , ,


Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Upper Key Stage 2 in a zip file based on ‘The Story Shop: Stories for Literacy’ compiled by Nikki Gamble. 

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 with vocabulary links, the task sheets (with scaffolding) and the planning that we use to teach the Key Stage Two Reading Domains.

Both texts are taken from the ‘Traditional Stories’ section of the book.

The first text is a myth: How Fire Came to Earth by Lucy Coats.

The second text is a legend: Saint George and the Dragon by Margaret Clark.


These resources are made for Year 5 and 6 pupils and will show evidence for a number of reading skills at different abilities including retrieval, vocabulary, inference and summarising.

This unit is for UKS2 so it is the same for both Year 5 and Year 6.

You will need to purchase the book to complete this unit.
