Life on the Scilly Isles in 1907 is bleak and full of hardship. Laura’s twin brother, Billy, disappears and then a storm devastates everything. It seems there is little hope…that is until the sailing ship the Zanzibar is wrecked on the island’s rocks and everything changes…
This set of lesson plans is loosely based on the Year 5 Literacy Framework and covers a range of core skills such as dictionary work and different writing styles. It can be used over a period of 3 weeks to form a unit of work. The suggested activities are in no particular order and not specific only to year 5 so can be used as and when, or as a guided reading activity. All the worksheets are designed to be photocopiable.

This is the book my teacher read to us the other day and every one in my class wanted to read to the class and I really loved it.
This was a book I read in english class and I enjoyed it. The way they go from 1995 back in time to 1907 is a great affect.
