SKU: TTH12VATFNA Categories: ,


Whole Class Reading resources and planning in a zip file, for Narrative History in Year 2 based on Kate Cunningham’s ‘Vlad and The Florence Nightingale Adventure’. This unit features work on inference, sequencing, clarification, visualisation, vocabulary and retrieval skills. This story supports work in History in KS1 on the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements. It is told from the point of view of Vlad the flea and the texts used have been based on the original story.

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 teach and assess the comprehension skills of your Y2 class, showing a good understanding of the behaviour of the characters within the text. 

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.

This unit is complemented by our Vlad and The Great Fire of London unit, by the same author.
