Whole Class Reading fiction resources and planning for Year 2, in a zip file based on Chris Van Allsburg’s book ‘The Polar Express’. Vocabulary, Retrieval, Inference and Sequencing are all covered in this unit. Teaching children how to answer different question types using popular texts will greatly enhance their enjoyment of reading and understanding.

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 Year 2 Reading Domains; the task sheets; 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.
