After hours of reading and PD on Pie Corbett’s Talk4Writing, I decided to plan my English lessons around his style of teaching. The idea behind it is fun filled, active and different so my children and I absolutely love it!

*4 day, detailed lesson plan.
*Power Point of the story.
*‘Theseus and the Minotaur’ text resource (color coded).
*‘Box-it up’ planning frame.
*Hot Seating Questions which allow the children to get into the mind of the Minotaur.

I have put a lot of detail into the lesson plan, so it can be easily followed to apply this style of teaching to your ENglish lessons. The idea behind it is:
Week 1= Imitation Phase.
In this week, children need to learn off a text to fully immerse themselves in the style of writing, structure, language etc. This is done through actions and also text mapping (drawing pictures).

Only when children fully understand a text type, should they begin to write. The writing of a myth will be done in week 3. (This resource is only week 1).

By the end of the week, your children should fully understand the features of a myth, and should be able to recite a whole myth using their text map.

It’s lots of fun and a fantastic scaffolding for children to understand before they write.

Give it a try!
