A whole week of planning and resources, aimed at Grade 3 and 4. Linked to the Egyptian book of the dead. This week long unit really improved the writing in my class, taking the process step by step and modelling at each stage. They were then able to do the process independently in our subsequent units.
The week opens by watching an animated version of the myth. Children then spend the week learning how to structure and write a 5 part action story, using description, showing not telling, suspense and detail.
Designed to incorporate lots of shared writing and modelling as a class and in pairs.
