Year 6 Narrative Unit 4 - Short Stories with Flashbacks
New unit based on the film UP

This unit of work is modelled on ideas from The Piano by Aidan Gibbons and will provide teachers with an alternative to this well loved piece. This sequence can be used as a stand-alone unit to examine the technique of flashbacks or as an extension to the unit on narrative structure for Year 5 (unit 5). The animations need to be viewed a number of times before the lessons to support children in identifying the key themes of the texts and in considering personal responses to the text.
Literacy Teaching Resources: UP (Short Stories with flashbacks) is a complete unit of work (includes a scheme of work overview, assessment guidance, detailed lessons and activities, 30 slide PowerPoint and accompanying worksheets).  Lessons follow the Phase 1,2 and 3 teaching sequence and cover the related core learning objectives (see preview below).  UP includes a range of varied lessons and activities throughout teaching phases one, two and three for children of all abilities:
