Literacy Medium Term Plan

Year 2 - Owls Term 5 Teacher: Mr. N. Bailey Duration 7 weeks
This medium term plan is based on an analysis of strengths and weaknesses in the class at the end of term 4. It does not necessarily follow the literacy framework units as the progression is topic based, following the theme of “Castles”.
