Unit 2: Explanations
You can use this unit summary, suggested timing and prior learning to support your planning and teaching of the Primary Framework across this unit.
This unit builds on children's experience and knowledge from previous learning and introduces new areas of learning that will be developed during the year. It can be linked to many other curriculum areas and to personal, social and health education.
Check that children can already:
- use alphabetical order to access simple dictionaries and glossaries.
- read simple definitions and explanations.
- write simple reports
- contribute to class discussions on the use of conjunctions which relate to cause and effect, for example, 'because' and 'so'.
