Home School Reading resources and planning for Year 2, in a zip file based on Natalie Pritchard’s ‘Monty the Manatee’. This book will link well to the emotional intelligence part of the Year 2 curriculum and could link to the Year 2 Geography curriculum of continents and oceans.   Inference, retrieval, clarification, questioning and prediction skills are mainly covered in this unit.  This unit could easily be extended into numerous more lessons including many incidental writing opportunities for descriptive settings, diary writing and letters.  The book has endless possibilities and is the first book produced by the author.

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 focus; full planning using the KS1 Reading Domains; numerous tasks for you to choose from; and the word document texts that we used – all ready to print.

The tasks set for the children are sometimes scaffolded from Gold, to Silver to Bronze, to allow you to choose the one that you think most suits your child’s ability.  Please choose whichever one you prefer and remove the support as and when you need to.

The plans are included to show what teachers use, but each slide is also explained in the second PowerPoint as a recording so you can just play them as a slideshow and allow us to teach for you!
