How does a Hot Air Balloon Fly? Explanation Text Planning for Year 5/6

£7.50

About this unit:

This is a ten-lesson unit of English work based on the reading and writing of an explanation text. It is intended for Upper Key Stage 2. This unit follows the 2014 National Curriculum objectives.

The ten lessons in this unit allow children to explore, discuss and understand an explanation text. During the first week children will explore ‘How does a Hot Air Balloon Fly?’ which is an example of explanation text linked to ‘Forces’ which year 5 children learn about in science. Through guided and shared activities children will write their own version of this text ensuring they have included the correct language and organisational features. In the second week, children will research ‘How does a Plane Fly?’ Children will then apply what they have learned in the first week and plan, write and edit an explanation text about ‘How does a Plane Fly?’ which they will write independently.
