Whole Class Reading non-fiction resources and planning for Year 4, in a zip file based on Valerie Bloom’s, ‘The River’ and David Windle’s, ‘River Runs Free’ in our  ‘River Poetry’ unit. Vocabulary, Retrieval, Clarification, Visualisation and Inference 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 and this unit complements a study of Rivers perfectly.

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 KS2 Reading Domains; and the task sheets (scaffolded once) all ready to print. The original poems are needed to complete the unit (links provided).
