A Series of Lessons for Year 2 based on The Magic Backpack by Julia Jarman

Lesson 1: To enjoy the story read by adult. To discuss setting, characters and content.

Lesson 2: To design and label their own magic backpack, stating why the different parts would be useful on their voyage.

Lesson 3: To draw up a story plan, by firstly answering the questions:

Where will it take me?
Why do I want I go there?
What will happen?

Lesson 4: To verbally tell the story to a small group, inviting responses and improvements from peers.

A very enjoyable series of lessons, pulling together speaking and listening with the creative art of developing ideas for a story, without the onerous task of having to write letters, words and sentences! The boys particularly liked designing and labelling their own rucksack there were some weird and wonderful ideas!
