Each unit provides:

  • between 5- and 8-days’ planning
  • focused grammar revision
  • formal SATs-style comprehension activities

The Texts

The block capitalises on children’s enthusiasm for the exciting and accessible novel, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, which you can read with your class as you teach the units. To provide a greater depth and variety of language, the comprehension activities use award-winning Ann Turnbull’s beautifully illustrated Greek Myths.

If you are thinking of dipping into the Percy Jackson series, we have noticed that The Book People are currently selling all five books in the series for £7.99.

For absolutely all you need to revise for the English papers and make it enjoyable for you and the children, take a look at our Year 6 Spring Revision Blocks.
