Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 2, in a zip file based on Helen Stephens’ ‘How to Hide a Lion at School’ book based on early inference skills.
In this pack you will find 2 x whole class lessons (an hour long for each – or you can split them); inference warm ups; an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary focus; planning using KS1 Reading Domains; the differentiated task sheets; and the word document texts all ready to print. Helen Stephens has tweeted our Year Two class as you will see in the resources, so you could encourage your class to write tweets for her too! These resources will show evidence for a number of reading skills, particularly focusing on inference skills at different abilities including early SATs style questions. These lessons will hopefully help to assess the early reading skills of the classes.
You will need to purchase this book to complete the 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.
How to Hide a Lion available too.
