The Egyptian Cinderella Literacy Pack contains a complete unit of work for Years 3/4, with full lesson plans and pupil resources based on the book 'The Egyptian Cinderella' by Shirley Climo. 


The ten lessons in this unit aim to give children the opportunity to read and listen to the story of The Egyptian Cinderella a number of times in order to become familiar with the language and structure of the story. In the first week, children will engage with the text through fun drama, discussion and debate activities in order to increase their understanding of the story and they will have the opportunity to articulate ideas about the text using an increasingly varied vocabulary. There is also a grammar focus on using comparative conjunctions, feelings words and action verbs as well as a chance to develop thesaurus skills. In the second week, pupils will plan their own story based on the structure of The Egyptian Cinderella and they will then have the opportunity to draft, edit and present their final narrative.


The objectives covered in this unit are:

  • To compare different versions of a traditional story

  • To predict what might happen in a story

  • To use comparative conjunctions

  • To use a thesaurus to improve writing

  • To infer how a character feels

  • To use feelings words

  • To identify how verbs can create an action section

  • To take part in a class debate

  • To make a story plan

  • To write my own narrative

  • To edit my writing

  • To make decisions about how to present my writing
