SKU: TTH12MTM Categories: ,


Whole Class 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 it could link to the KS1 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 all ready to print.

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. You can purchase the book to complete this unit from here! There is a free teaching pack available too: https://seaschoolstories.co.uk/
