Year 6 Planning Exemplification, 2002-2003. The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
This booklet contains examples of units of work for teaching children in Year 6 as part of the National Literacy Strategy. The seven units are drawn from all three terms in Year 6. Some of the units were written for the Year 6 Exemplification booklets in 2001-2002 and are reproduced in this publication with supplementary resources and/or guidance. Other units are new. The units cover reading and writing objectives in three non-fiction text types, narrative, poetry and plays and related sentence and word level objectives. The suggested length of these units varies from one week to three. The five-week revision unit prepares children specifically for the Key Stage 2 test. It covers narrative, poetry, and non-narrative reading, and narrative and non-narrative writing. Each unit consists of a five-page content section--contents page, introduction, teaching objectives, and teaching plan--and resources section. For most of the units, the resources section contains all the resources the teacher needs to teach the unit. (RS)
