SKU: TTH11WTB Categories: ,


Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 1 in a zip file based on Maureen Thomson and Craig Smith’s, ‘Willbee the Bumblebee’ (authors of the famously funny ‘Wonky Donkey’) – focusing on explanation of text read, clarification, visualisation, retrieval, sequencing and prediction skills.

In this pack you will find 2 x ‘Whole Class’, full and detailed lessons plans ready to use (the lessons being an hour long each – or you can split them to teach in shorter sessions throughout the week), an editable PowerPoint presentation; vocabulary focus throughout; the task sheets with scaffolding support at two levels and the texts all ready to print. There are additional ideas in the planning to support phonics using the text too. These resources will support the teaching of and enjoyment of reading using a popular text.

You will need to purchase this book to complete the unit. Please note that for our KS1 units, we provide a text extract that differs from the actual book. It is against copyright to take and reproduce the text/pictures directly from a published book, so we always try to use our texts for the units based on the original. We always recommend that teachers have at least one copy of the book and read the original text with their pupils, then switch to the amended version that is based on the original.
