Overview and Outcomes:

This is an 11 session Literary Leaf for Arthur and the Golden Rope by Joe Todd Stanton which covers all aspects of the Lower Key Stage 2 content domains.  Throughout the sequence children will be provided with opportunities to develop skills of retrieval, inference, summarising and sequencing through taking part in class discussions, completing practical activities and answering questions.

Synopsis of Text:

Imagine a vault so cavernous that it could contain all the world's greatest treasures and relics, from mummified remains of ancient monarchs to glistening swords brandished by legendary warriors. Who could be in charge of such a vault and how did he come into possession of such a unique collection? Who is...Professor Brownstone?

Links to Curriculum areas, other Literary Leaves and Planning Sequences:

The First Drawings by Mordicai Gerstein (Y3 planning sequence in the Literary Curriculum) would be an ideal text to teach this alongside.
