English Year 5 Autumn Reports and Recounts

Migration

Three amazing texts stimulate children’s reading, writing and discussion of first animal, then human, migration. Writing cohesively and using parentheses form the SPaG element, but children’s own creative work will make this block truly exciting.

Start with the core unit to introduce key texts. Then select from comprehension, SPAG and composition units.
