Yr 6 Whole Class Reading The Watertower


An unusual but intriguing picture book for Key Stage Two. This book contributes as much through its pictures as it does its text and has plenty of mystery to discover. Sinister with a twist…

Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 6 in a zip file based on Gary Crew’s book ‘The Water Tower’. 

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 (with scaffolding) 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 Key Stage Two 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 and decision-making both within the text and illustrations.  Your pupils will need a keen eye for detail! You will need to purchase the book to complete this unit.
