'She Wolf'. Vikings. Wolves. Female Protagonist.
This is week 1 of our six-week English scheme of work for Upper Key Stage 2 (P6 and 7) based on ‘She Wolf’ by Dan Smith. A historical fiction with a female protagonist, Ylva: a fiercely strong, young Viking girl who is determined to avenge her mother’s death.
Our full scheme comprises of 30 x 1 hour English lesson plans which will take your class through the text whilst they complete a wide range of differentiated activities. With oracy tasks weaved throughout our entire scheme, your class will enthusiastically discuss the themes and language in the book. All of the grammar objectives are creatively linked to the text: expanded noun phrases, adverbials of time and place, conjunctive adverbs, relative clauses, subordinating conjunctions, figurative language and direct speech. The grammar tasks will provide the children with the skills they need to complete two extended pieces of writing - an explanation text and a predictive narrative.
Like all our English schemes of work, this six-week unit includes bespoke teaching videos, WAGOLL texts and our hand-drawn images.
