Y3 Unit of Work – The Flower
Based around this beautifully written dystopian narrative, this Y3 unit of work follows a Mastery approach with a final outcome of a retelling of the story written from the main character’s viewpoint. The unit focuses on developing the following skills:
- Use conjunctions to express time, place and cause (when, before, after, while, so, because)
- Use adverbs to express time, place and cause
- Use prepositions to express time, place and cause
- Use inverted commas to punctuate direct speech
Ideal for teaching in the autumn term of year 3; it also includes clear objectives for developing reading and spoken language skills in each session throughout the three week unit.
