Year 4 Information Texts

Discussion in 'Primary' started by skt107, Jan 3, 2009.

  1. HELLLP! I have spent all day trying to plan this literacy unit! It will be linked with my Romans topic and I have a wealth of resources but just don't know where to start!!

    I know I would like my outcome to be a class information book on the Romans (including a contents page, glossary etc), but any ideas on how I can build up to this? I also need to do some kind of BWD at the end of the unit, but not sure what on or how!!

    Any ideas/suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanku in advance!!

  3. I'm starting with this topic next week and I'm basing it on my Egyptians topic but I have narrowed it down to Tutankhamun and they will be making it into a moving book to link in with my DT unit.

    I've divided the learning overview into three phases and put drama into the second phase. I will probably take about 7 days in phase 1, 5 in phase 2 and the rest in phase 3 as they will be putting the book together then. I would expect it to take about 4 weeks. Can email my first week's planning if you want to start you off. Mind you, it's the first time that I've done this unit so I don't know how it will work out. By the way, I am obviously being very thick, but what does BWD mean?



     
  4. ooh if you don't mind that would be great!! my e-mail add is year.4@live.co.uk - it'd really help thanku so much! And if there's anything i can do for u in return let me know, and ill b more than happy to help!

    Sorry my fault! BWD is Big Writing Day. Im really not sure how im going to do that. maybe an information leaflet or something. Anyone got any other ideas?

    I like your idea of doing it as the moving book - great idea!! Thanks again!

  10. Thanks skt107, still haven't got it. Must be lost in that big cyber space hole that emails and texts seem to sometimes get lost in. It took a text to my sister in law 5 days to arrive at her phone!
