Product Description
This is a 4 week unit of planning that supports pupils to write a story set in far off lands from a place very foreign to what they are used to. The text is the Mysterious Traveler by Mal Peet & Elspeth Graham who were inspired to write this book after visiting Mali and finding out one of the most famous local guides was blind. The story tells of an old man finding an abandoned baby in the desert who he adopts as his own grand-daughter. He teaches her how to track her way through the desert and she travels with him while he guides traders through the deserts of northern Africa. When he loses his vision she becomes his eyes and they work in tandem on their adventures. This unit has inspired my class to write some fantastic stories.

Stimulate and generate = This usually starts with a hook to interest the class where the class realise who they are going to write for so they have a clear purpose and audience. Activities can include reading excellent model texts, drama or researching more about the author or the content of the book.

Capture, sift and sort = This is the part of the unit where pupils look at key features, practise skills they will need in order to complete the final piece or new learning for objectives they have not learnt yet.

Create, refine, evaluate = This is where you bring all you have learnt together and plan the final piece before you write it and then edit it to improve the piece. This can include self, peer or teacher led reviewing.
