SKU: TTH26PHB Categories: ,


Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 6 in a zip file based on the first three chapters of Malorie Blackman’s ‘Pig Heart Boy’ book.

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 with vocabulary links, the task sheets and the planning that we use to teach the Key Stage Two Reading Domains. The tasks are closely linked to the question stems from recent SAT papers.


These resources are made for Year 6 pupils and will show evidence for a number of reading skills at different abilities. They will help to assess the understanding of the text, characterisation and attitudes along with promoting deep discussion on inference, decision-making and deeper emotions. It links well towards writing based on a balanced argument, persuasion or journalistic writing. You will need to purchase the book to complete this unit.
