Lesson Overview

Learn and Explore - Composition Skills 1

Each day has a different theme, inspired by authentic and engaging children’s literature. 

During each 4 hour lesson, learners will analyse language, draft and edit their own pieces with the support of the teacher. 3 different texts will be produced over 4 days. In the final lesson, the teacher will give individual feedback that will allow students to successfully write final versions. These will be added to their portfolio for later reference.

At the end of the week, they will act on individual teacher feedback to redraft and hone their work for later reference.

Learn and Explore - Comprehension Skills 1

Daily themes are explored by reading engaging fictional and non-fictional texts.

Students will gain practice answering basic question types seen in schools. They will be taught how to zoom in to consider the author’s language usage and zoom out to review the wider themes. 

Time will be spent at the end of each lesson critically reviewing the day’s reading. Students will discuss the day’s themes, likes and dislikes, what they have learned and consider what they want to understand more about!
