Year 2 into Year 3 Bridging Unit - A Bear Called Paddington (RES243)


A Bear Called Paddington by Michael Bond

Year 2 and Year 3 reading and writing skills are interwoven throughout both narrative and non-fiction units in this publication, all themed around one of our favourite bears from children’s literature – Paddington!

The first unit explores Michael Bond’s classic text, alongside the use of more recent film material. Regular short and long writing opportunities are embedded throughout the sequence as the children work towards an extended narrative of their own Paddington adventure.

This is followed by a non-fiction unit, in which children will explore a range of non- fiction sources, websites and clips, before writing their own tourist guide to either London or your local area. Be prepared for your classroom to be transformed to a tourist destination, complete with regular tours!
