Writing Informative Texts Unit Plan - Year 5 and Year 6

Teach Starter Publishing
10 x lessons | Suitable for grades: 5 - 6

This English unit addresses the informative text type; specifically, how to write a well-structured informative text.

It consists of 10 lessons of approximately 60 minutes duration.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.

An independent writing task, which may couple as an assessment task, is included in the unit. The number of lessons required to complete this task may vary from class to class.

This unit of work addresses the broad textual focus of informative writing. Teachers are encouraged to select a specific informative text type to focus on throughout the unit e.g. information report, factual description, explanation. In addition to this, teachers may also wish to select a specific content focus for students to write about e.g. objects, animals, phenomena. The resources accompanying this unit have been specifically designed to provide choice for teachers in these two areas.
