Whole Class Reading fiction resources and planning for Y4, in a zip file based on the first twenty pages of Shirley Hughes’ ‘The Lion and the Unicorn’. Vocabulary, Retrieval, Inference, Prediction, Clarification and Summarising are covered in this unit. This text would link really well to a WWII History unit.

In this pack you will find 2 x whole class lessons (an hour long focus – or you can split it into separate days); an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary focus; full planning using the KS2 Reading Domains; and the task sheets (scaffolded) all ready to print. The original book is needed to complete the unit.
