Yr 2 Whole Class Reading The Ugly Five


A rhyming, narrative poem with rich vocabulary.



SKU: TTH12UF Categories: ,


Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 2 in a zip file based on Julia Donaldson’s new book, ‘The Ugly Five’ based mainly on vocabulary use. Julia Donaldson’s use of language in this narrative rhyming poem really challenges the children to reading a wider variety of tier two words. This text links well with an Africa topic and it’s one of our favourites!

In this pack you will find 2 x whole class lessons (an hour long for each – or you can split them), inference warm ups; an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary focus throughout; the task sheets with scaffolding support and the word document texts to show evidence all ready to print. These resources will show evidence for a number of reading skills at different abilities.

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.
