Overview and Outcomes:

This is a three-week sequence for Naughty Bus by Jan Oke.  As well creating their own story, the children will have the opportunity to write two simple pieces of information writing, one based on buses and another on toys. Initially, the children will share information about buses and try and to find out what they already know about buses to create a shared simple piece of information writing. After this, there will be some drama where the classroom is messed up or someone has drawn on something! The teacher will read part of Naughty Bus and the children will start to look for evidence to prove it is indeed Naughty Bus who has caused the chaos.  After reading all of the book, the children will use Naughty Bus to innovate upon, inventing the sequel for his adventures. This will be based on the local area and will involve children captioning photos of the bus up to no good in other settings. To structure this, the children will use storyboards which they will have had modelled for them. Finally, the children will look at toys and bring their own in. They will have the opportunity to sort and categorise the toys and then create a piece of shared information writing as well as their own, before writing their own naughty toy adventure.

A Spelling Seed is available for Naughty Bus.

Spelling Seed Overview:

Overview:

This is a three-session spelling seed for the book Naughty Bus by Jan Oke.  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.
