Book idea for bright year 6 class related to food topic.

Discussion in 'Primary' started by TeacherNorth, Jan 23, 2011.

  1. I have a very bright Year 6 class with mainly boys and need an idea for a
    book that will keep them engaged through SATs revision of recounts,
    reports and persuasive writing. During the half term between Feb and
    Easter my school has a whole school food topic which I need to match the
    book to. I am really struggling for ideas and would appreciate any
    tips. I keep coming back to a Roald Dahl (e.g. Charlie and Chocolate
    factory) but I think they would be too easy for the curent bunch that I
    have. Please help!

    Thank you.

  3. As they are a bright bunch could the book be a biography / auto biography of a foodie/chef person?

    "Toast" by Nigel Slater would fit into the category. And several will have seen him on TV recently in his series. Also the book was made into a tv programme, also recently, so you could show that as well.

    Or of course you could simply tell your HT that there isn't a book that will work for sats and your class, as well as fit the topic, so you will be using one that doesn't fit with the topic, but does enable children to learn at their level!
