This English unit has been designed for the first three weeks of the school year for stage two students (years five and six).
This unit is designed for the start of a new school year. Its focus is to create a community of learners by establishing clear routines for the literacy session, introducing reflective practice and embedding formative assessment into daily lessons. The central purpose of this unit is to build a sense of reading for enjoyment. As wide a range of texts as possible should be read and discussed.
The unit should incorporate introductions to each other, sharing routines, classroom organisation, expectations for behaviour and learning and English syllabus content that supports classroom routines and organisation.
