Ocean life and Animals are such fun topics to teach. I love to plan my units of work so that they link across all curriculum areas making learning more authentic, engaging and relevant.

Many months of researching the internet go into my planning of these thematic units, so that you will have hours of your precious time saved researching the topic The Animal Unit
The Year 6 booklet is a unit of work designed for you to create a series of lessons based on the theme of animals. This is such a popular theme, but can be explored at a deeper level with older students.

Have fun, and 'wow' kids with some fantastic videos and games to support the themes presented in the wonderful story 'the Great Bear' by Libby Gleeson. The theme of animals in circuses could spark some lively debate and lots of persuasive writing. It is a wonderful book to use as a focus for visual literacy too. Ocean Life/Sea Unit The Island, by John Heffernan is a wonderful story about a blind boy who sees the beauty of the island he lives on, while the people around him cannot see it. A fantastic story with a link to a narration by the author.
