SKU: TTH12OTWH Categories: ,


Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 2 in a zip file based on Jill Murphy’s ‘On the Way Home’ book based on early retrieval, sequencing and prediction skills. This book is based on a structured, repetitive story where the children can use what they have read to both accurately predict and also retrieve for word work and sequencing. 

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; the task sheets with scaffolding support, and the texts all ready to print. These lessons will hopefully help to assess the retrieval reading skills of your Y2 class. 

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.
