Whole-Class Reading non-fiction resources and planning for Year 4, in a zip file, based on the story of ‘Vikings in 30 seconds’ by Philip Steele. Vocabulary, Prediction, Inference, Summarising, Explanations, Clarification, Questioning, Visualisation and Retrieval reading skills 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 the Vikings 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 to one level for KS2) all ready to print. The original book is needed to complete the unit.
