‘How to’ guide
15+ sessions, 3+ weeks
In this three-week planning sequence, for Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey, children have the opportunity to explore character motives and feelings before researching a selection of animals and going on to write an own-version narrative. They are then asked by a character for some help in writing a ‘How to be a …’ guide and create this for a chosen pet. The sequence includes regular opportunities for use of phonic knowledge and also embeds some of the spelling requirements for year 1. It supports the children into writing for a range of audiences and purposes, developing skills in composition, understanding of a range of punctuation and use of nouns and prepositions to construct a range of sentences and convey meaning.
Pig is the greediest Pug in the world. He is bad-tempered, rude and he never, ever shares. Friendly sausage dog Trevor is always trying to persuade Pig to play with him, but without success. When Pig is asked to share his toys, his greed finally backfires and something unexpected happens to him. Will Pig the Pug learn his lesson at last? A hilarious picture book about learning to share.

A Spelling Seed is available for Pig the Pug.
This is a three-session spelling seed for the book The Dogs Project using the books Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey and How to Be a Dog by Jo Williamson. 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.
