Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce
Year 5 / Year 6 English Teaching Resources: Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce
The range of activities in this unit of work are intended to suggest opportunities around the novel Framed by Frank Cottrell Boyce which can be used in English and across the curriculum. At least one copy of the novel will need to be used and it is recommended that the novel is read for pleasure outside the English lesson. There are weblinks to extend and enrich children’s learning and teachers will identify PSHE opportunities arising from the activities.
There are specific activities to teach the spelling, punctuation, grammar and vocabulary statutory requirements of the English National Curriculum 2014 but teachers will identify further opportunities which should be tailored to the needs of the children in their classes.
It is not intended to be a prescriptive unit of work where all activities are worked through slavishly, although it is structured chronologically. Not all chapters have activities. Teachers should select from, and adapt, these resources to meet the needs of the children they teach. There are some potentially controversial issues explored throughout the story and teachers should make their own decisions about which elements to include. All the links to external sites are valid at the date of publication but should be checked before use.
Frank Cottrell Boyce’s novels for children include Millions, Cosmic and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Rides Again, all filled with his trademark wit, warmth and sense of story. He is also a successful writer of film scripts and was the official scriptwriter for the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 Olympics, playing an important role in the creation of the ceremony with Danny Boyle.
