  • A comprehension activity with eight varied questions
  • Two grammar questions about the text

This resource is great for:

  • In class learning
  • Independent work
  • Homework
  • Creative writing sessions
  • Assessment practice
  • Emergency sub plans

The close reading activity requires NO PREP; it has a body of text that students need to read through thoroughly; then they can use the text to find the comprehension and grammar answers. All texts then have an extension activity for those fast finishers and answers, for teacher use, are on the final page of the document. It also contains a crossword activity to consolidate learning.

The Informational Writing Unit is split into three lessons. The first lesson is interactive and involves them cutting out facts, and then sorting these facts into paragraphs. In the second lesson the children need to use these facts to write four paragraphs. Then, in the final lesson your class will need to use the format provided to write an introduction for the text before checking their draft paragraphs for mistakes and writing up their work into a neat copy on the template provided.
