About Skellig by David Almond:
A strange creature – part owl, part angel – called Skellig who needs Michael’s help if he is to survive. With his new friend Mina, Michael nourishes Skellig back to health, while his baby sister languishes in the hospital. But Skellig is far more than he at first appears, and as he helps Michael breathe life into his tiny sister, Michael’s world changes forever…
Complete unit includes downloadable and editable planning and teaching resources (pupil activity sheets, PowerPoint slides, text extracts) and moderation guidance
Overview grid provides information on themes and topics, writing outcomes, curriculum coverage and week-by-week planning
Skellig was perfect because our first theme was Charles Darwin and Evolution, and this book keeps circling around both of these themes throughout.
