    Just re planning my MTP as on inset day, told we have to use a text based approach to our English lessons. Can anyone give me a good starting point for some texts appropriate for Year 5/6 please? Are there any good websites too? I would need to get a range of writing from them. Thank you for your help!

    All above suggestions are good, but if it were me I'd also wanting to be try linking texts to our topic if it were possible and not 'forced for the sake of it'.

    So what topics are you studying?

    The Giant's Necklace, plus Street Child which we link to our Victorians topic.

    Good idea! We are studying Ancient Greece until Christmas so Percy Jackson and the Greek Heroes will be good start. I normally get bored with the book after about 2 weeks though. Ha!

    Tales from the Aeniad- abbreviated version springs to mind. Though they're probably included in the Greek heroes?
    Aesop's Fables.Again quite short and you can do as many/ few as you'd like.

    I'm sure there's a Time-slip story but can't at the moment remember either author or a title. (Been several years since we abandoned Ancient Greece.)
