Lesson Planned

The Digestive System Literacy Lesson Bundle

This lesson plan follows on from the Prime VR (Virtual Reality) workshop ‘Food for Thought’ but can be used as a standalone Literacy lesson about imaginative recounts.

Pupils will have the chance to read a high-quality, imaginative diary entry about ‘Stuart the Strawberry’ travelling through the digestive system which is specifically designed to match the writing expectations for Key Stage 2. Your class can then search for the features of the diary entry using the writing checklists which are differentiated for LKS2 and UKS2.

They can then attempt to write their own diary entry using their notes from the model text and their writing checklist to ensure they have included the correct features to meet age related expectations for this text type.

What is included?

  • A model imaginative recount about Stuart the Strawberry’s journey through the digestive system
  • A comprehensive lesson plan
  • Persuasive writing checklists for LKS2 and UKS2

Curriculum links and topics:

  • The Digestive System
