    I have been looking at the CLPE briefly and reading some blogs on this and from what I can gather it looks really useful.
    Does anybody out there have a copy of the Year 6 unit relating to Mister Tom that they would be happy to share.
    many thanks in advance.

    I am struggling to find any decent plans for this unit and would appreciate any help.

    If you google there are many examples including those on tes.
    May not be directly related to CLPE but may be of help.

    Is this something to do with Book Power 6? If so, it is quite cheap on Amazon. Does it have units of work/ideas in it?

    The Power of Reading units are protected by copyright.
    Your school needs to sign up to use the Power of Reading scheme in order to use them.
    It's not especially expensive (I think a few hundred pounds a year for the whole school).
    And then, you'll have access to all of the units plans, from Y1-Y6.
    I suggest you get your English coordinator to look into it or contact CLPE.
    They are very good.

    Good to know thanks, but I'm more interested in creating my own units. This book is on their website so I wondered how useful it would be.

    And I should add that the POR units are good, but like all schemes of work, need to be adapted heavily. They are a source of some good ideas and resources, though.
    I don't know much about the book on their website - the POR schemes are pdf files that you get access to once you sign up.
    My reply to the OP was mainly to state that they are copyrighted so I wouldn't be allowed to email copies to him/her.

    Thanks for the info. I might get it then to have a browse as I want to freshen things up this year.
    I've never managed to use a unit of work straight off the page, but maybe that's just me :)

    The unit on the power of reading website is indeed the same one as in 'Book Power 6' by CLPE. The book also comes with a CD containing the resources. I have used this unit twice, and got on well with it for a year 5 & 6 class.
