Year 6 Literacy Booster Lessons, 2003. The National Literacy Strategy.
Department for Education and Skills, London (England).
The booster lessons included in this book are designed for those children who need targeted support to secure National Curriculum Level 4 in the Key Stage 2 English tests. As the children work through 18 booster lessons, they will revisit key objectives that will help ensure that they achieve their full potential in the end-of-Key Stage 2 tests. These materials are designed to complement the Year 6 Planning Exemplification. The lessons cover persuasive writing, narrative writing, and report writing. The sections include guided reading sessions to introduce the text type, review key features and provide models to support shared and independent writing. The lessons provide opportunities for children to plan, write, and edit against agreed criteria. The spelling challenges are intended as quick reminders of spelling work that children have already covered. (PM)
