Synopsis

Avoid Working on the Great Wall of China by Jacqueline Morley

The humorous cartoon-style illustrations and the narrative approach encourage readers to get emotionally involved with the characters, aiding their understanding of what life would have been like building the Great Wall of China. Informative captions, a complete glossary, and an index make this title an ideal introduction to the conventions of non-fiction texts for young readers. It fits into KS2 History, providing an insight into 'significant people, events and places in the past'. It is an ideal text for shared and guided reading for KS2 pupils within the framework of National Literacy Strategy. It helps achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
