Literacy medium term plans

    I have recently become the Literacy leader in a two form entry primary school, but I have discovered that the teachers don't have much in terms of medium term plans. It is something we have done some work on the past few weeks and something which we will be spending some time on next term, but I need a bit of guidance and help with what is expected in a medium term plan. I have seen examples which have the NC statements copied and pasted in, which I think is a pointless, time-consuming activity and wondered whether there might be someone more experienced that has a proforma or format that has been acknowledged as being good.

    All we have on our medium term plans are, for each week
    1) the genre taught
    2) the book/film/poem/image used as the impetus
    3) the grammar focus for the week
    4) the spelling focus for the week

    Everything else goes on the weekly plan.

    That sounds similar to what I have been trying to sort. We have very detailed weekly plans so I don't think the med term needs to be overly detailed. Thank you.
