SKU: TTH12TSATS Categories: ,


Whole-Class Reading resources and planning for Year 2, in a zip file based on Julia Donaldson’s ‘The Smeds and the Smoos’. This book is an absolute delight and contains some strong messages of diversity and acceptance within a simple, effective storyline. This unit could easily be extended into numerous more lessons including many incidental writing opportunities for PSHE, diary writing and letters. The book has endless possibilities. 

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; a scaffolded task and a drawing prediction task; 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.
