Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 2, in a zip file based on Isabel Sanchez Vegara’s ‘Amelia Earhart’. This book will link well to the historical elements of the Year 2 curriculum and also has links to the Year 2 Geography curriculum of continents and oceans. Inference skills are mainly covered in this unit to prepare the pupils for Year 3. 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 part of a set if you wanted to explore other inspirational women.
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!
It is advisable to purchase the book to complete this unit.
