Course Information:
An exciting and extensive unit of work, including a wealth of differentiated resources, media and ICT, to develop reading and writing for KS1
The unit will be based upon the text ‘The Egg’ where George’s discovery of a large egg under his mother’s chicken hatches into a baby dragon. George takes his job of looking after the dragon very seriously… It will also contain an additional unit of introductory ideas that focus upon dragons that provides background and context to the narrative and also serves as an independent mini unit.

Additional Information: Prepared and presented by Deborah Ainscoe (Headteacher Old Hall Primary, former Primary Literacy Consultant and LA writing moderator) and Mike Ainscoe (Former Primary Strategy Consultant). There will be examples of how the unit has been tried and tested within a school context and the development of reading and writing skills.
