The range of activities in this unit of work are intended to suggest opportunities around the novel Matilda by Roald Dahl. At least one copy of the novel will need to be used. There are hyperlinks to extend and enrich pupil's learning and teachers will identify further opportunities arising from these activities.
The whole unit of work could be completed in about 2 weeks, or extended to half a term’s work using the suggested links.
It is not intended to be a prescriptive unit of work where all activities are worked through slavishly, although it is structured chronologically. Teachers should select from, and adapt, these resources to meet the needs of the pupils they teach. There are some potentially sensitive 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.Our Price : £12.99 / 13 Credits
