When I was an NQT a specialist literacy teacher came to help me prepare my class for SATs. She did a unit of work based around a fictional village and it lead to lots and lots of different types of writing. The children really enjoyed it but now, 6 years on, I can't find the planning she gave me. Does this ring any bells to anyone? I know there is the chance she might have planned this herself but I was hoping it might be on line somewhere. Anyway, I'll keep my fingers crossed.
