    I am trying to plan a talk for writing unit over about 3 weeks on Scarab's Secret for year 3/4. Just wondering whether anyone had any ideas, or even better, any plans they wouldn't mind sharing so I can get some ideas.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you still need this? I have just done this. I can send you what I have. I am looking for a T4W story Map (Pages or whole book) and we wondered if you did any? Any pictures at all?

    Hi Alan,

    Sorry to jump in! I am about to start planning this as a TfW unit also and would love to see some of your ideas! Even just the shortened version you are having the children learn would help. Will be happy to share my story map etc when I've completed it.

    Dear God..... the curse of the 21st century teacher. If you have to teach from someone else's plans, there's no ownership and no enjoyment. It's just education's equivalent of painting by numbers.

    Maybe just read the book and think how you could use it to help your class make progress with their writing?

    Hey I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sending over any planning, activities or resources you have for this text based on T4W. missiddon92@gmail.com

    I didn’t end up using it as I was really short of planning time. I went for a different activity in the end.
