    I have been asked to plan a unit of narrative work based on the book called the scarabs secret for year 6 children. I just through I would start off by asking if anyone knows this book and has any wow ideas for it? Any advice or ideas are really appreciated!

  2. I have a unit plan for this book. If you want to leave your email, I can send it to you.
    It's a fab book. My kid's loved it! We kept up the whole mystery/suspense idea by only reading a page at a time and did a huge amount of prediction / justification work. Also plenty of scope for modelling sentence work and writing in role from different character's perspective from Khepri, the beetle, the Prince and the Prince's guards.
    I love, love, love this book!

  4. hello, I have just ordered this book as part of our history topic with mixed year 3/4 and wondered if i could be very cheeky and ask for a copy of your unit plan for this book. I have heard alot of good things about the book. my email address is zoe_lawton@yahoo.co.uk. thank you. Zoe
  5. I am also in the middle of planning a Literacy unit for this book but am new to year 5/6. Is there any chance I could have a look at your unit plan too fakesmiles to make sure I am on the right track? I feel I am struggling a bit with this as used to planning for year 3!
    Your help would be much appreciated

  6. Hi,
    Hope you don't mind me jumping on the bandwagon, but I am also covering The Scarabs Secret with my Year 4's in conjunction with our History topic. I would love to have a look at some ideas for using it in literacy. My email address is maizy_93@yahoo.co.uk

    Thank you x
  7. I am just about to start a topic on Egypt for years 2, 3 and 4. Would this book be suitable for that age group?
    If you think it is, I would much appreciate a copy of the unit plan.

  8. I am not usually a bandwagon jumper...but would be grateful for a copy please

  9. Sorry - haven't looked at this thread for a long time!! I still have the plan somewhere - I'll dig it out and forward it to all who've left email.
    Jane Mear - I did this with year 4 - I'm not sure if you could go as far down as year 2 with it but if you leave an email, I'll gladly forward my plan for you to look at?
  10. Thank you very much - the plans are really helpful :)
