Teaching From Text
English Lesson plans (and ALL resources) for KS2 based on rich and challenging texts.
Your FREE Christmas Present!
‘The Dog That Saved Christmas’ by Nicola Davies is the touching, diverse and insightful story about Jake, a young boy who struggles with the noises, lights, other people and the lack of routine which comes with the festive period. Christmas is a real nightmare for Jake, until he finds a lost dog and she becomes his trusty companion. The bond that quickly develops between the two of them changes Jake’s views and makes the difficulties he experiences, much more bearable.
Teaching From Text have created two different festive English units of work focused on Jake’s journey- one for Lower Key Stage 2 and another for Upper Key Stage 2. Both units are two weeks long and are completely FREE, to help you with those final weeks before the Christmas holidays.
Both FREE units contain 10 x 1 hour English lesson plans, differentiated and engaging activities, top teaching tips, hand-drawn images, bespoke teaching videos, every single resource needed and opportunities for the development of reading, writing, SPAG and oral skills – all of which focus on this high-quality text.
