Our ‘Shakespeare’ collection of units is designed to share the works of one of our greatest writers and to foster a love of his stories. A focus on spoken language skills will ensure pupils are able to perform their written work to an audience.

Our mixed age planning was written to support a variety of school settings.  From one mixed age class to a school with several mixed age classes, the planning can be flexibly adapted using a range of cycles to suit. Cycles of mixed age planning are available for years 1/2, 3 /4, 4/5 and 5/6. They have been carefully thought out to ensure progression and coverage of skills for each of the year groups whilst retaining high quality texts suitable for the age range. We are always happy to advise on different configurations of classes and how Pathways to Write can be adapted to suit any circumstance.

All of the Shakespeare units comprise 15 sessions of English planning and focuses on mastering key writing skills (grammar, vocabulary and punctuation) from the national curriculum. They contain opportunities to develop reading comprehension, writing composition and spoken language. These skills are woven throughout the units.

Term information: This Shakespeare themed collection of units aligns with skills and progression covered in Pathways to Write, Summer 2.

Resources: PowerPoints, lesson plans and abridged methodology.

These units can be used individually or as part of a whole-school themed project.
