This unit includes 10 complete lesson plans, activities and fully interactive PowerPoints to teach Year 2 children all about Information Texts. Throughout this unit they will begin by learning about cats and dogs by reading the two stories ‘Dogs’ and ‘Matilda’s Cat’ by the award winning author and illustrator Emily Gravett. They work in small groups to answer text-related questions as well as retelling the story of ‘Matilda’s Cat’ as they apply their knowledge of the -ing suffix. During week 2, they will begin to explore the features of information texts using the provided resources. They will research, plan and write their own information pages which they will then self assess at the end of the week.
