This is a three-week planning sequence using Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers Create a situation, before introducing the author or text, where the penguin appears in the classroom with a sign hanging around his neck, saying ‘I am lost’. Introduce Oliver Jeffers and display a collection of his books within the classroom and book area. Read several stories as part of Guided Reading and story time, particularly books containing the boy (Noah) from ‘Lost and Found’, e.g. ‘How to Catch a Star’, ‘Up and Down’ and ‘The Way Back Home’. Encourage children to read more by the same author. Write a sequence of instructions using consistent tense, detailed diagrams and numbers or words indicating chronological order (marking and feedback against agreed success criteria).
From the rising star of children’s picture books comes the magical tale of friendship and loneliness, a boy and a penguin. There once was a boy… and one day a penguin arrives on his doorstep. The boy decides the penguin must be lost and tries to return him. But no one seems to be missing a penguin. So the boy decides to take the penguin home himself, and they set out in his row boat on a journey to the South Pole. But when they get there, the boy discovers that maybe home wasn’t what the penguin was looking for after all.

A Spelling Seed is available for Lost and Found.
This is a three-session spelling seed for the book Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. Below is the coverage from Appendix 1 of the National Curriculum 2014.
Spelling Seeds have been designed to complement the Literary Curriculum by providing weekly, contextualised sequences of sessions for the teaching of spelling that include open-ended investigations and opportunities to practise and apply within meaningful and purposeful contexts, linked (where relevant) to other areas of the curriculum and a suggestion of how to extend the investigation into home learning.
Spelling Seeds work alongside the texts within the Literary Curriculum and, as such, will also reflect the suggested number of weeks spent on a text, as well.
