SKU: TTH12MC Categories: ,


Whole Class Reading resources and planning for Year 2 in a zip file based on Emily Gravett’s ‘Meerkat Christmas’ book based on early retrieval and inference skills. This book is a gorgeous festive treat for the children where Sunny, the Meerkat, goes in search of the perfect Christmas. Through the story, Emily Gravett shows that Christmas can be anything you want it to be.

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; the task sheets with scaffolding support, and the texts all ready to print. These lessons will hopefully help to assess the reading skills of your Y2 class. 

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.
