Whole-Class Reading fiction resources and planning for three weeks for Year 3, in a zip file, based on the story of ‘The Swan Warrior’ found in Lori Don’s collection of stories from the Viking Sagas, ‘The Dragon’s Hoard’. Vocabulary, Prediction, Inference, Summarising, Explanations, Visualisation and Retrieval reading skills are all covered in this bargain 3-week unit. Teaching children how to answer different question types using popular texts will greatly enhance their enjoyment of reading and understanding and this unit complements a study of the Vikings perfectly.
In this pack you will find 3 x whole class lessons (an hour-long for each – or you can split them); an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary focus; full planning using the KS2 Reading Domains; and the task sheets (of which two of them in this unit are scaffolded at two different levels) all ready to print. The original book is needed to complete the unit.
This unit is the same as the Y4 unit.
