This resource includes one weeks electronic set of plans for parents for English and Literacy from Reception to Year 6.
Our exciting 'Read and Respond' units will support home learning in English and Literacy. The ‘mini units’, available for Years 1-6 inclusive, provide daily English lesson plans and have been designed for you to send home to parents. (Reception guidance for Literacy is also included, though in a slightly different format).
All the plans use text extracts freely downloadable from LoveReading4Kids, Oxford Owl or websites with free audio recordings.
It is suggested that each unit is sent to parents with an accompanying letter as a way of the class teacher personally introducing the unit of work. This will provide the teacher with the opportunity to address any particular sections of the plan, provide supporting materials (e.g. a writing frame) where appropriate and/or make reference to any prior learning. An editable example of how this might look is also included.
