A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for A Literary Leaf for Cogheart

Subscribers Only

KS: Literary Leaves, LKS2 / UKS2, Upper KS2

Year Group: Year 5, Year 6

Author(s): Peter Bunzl

 

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a 15 session Literary Leaf for Cogheart by Peter Bunzl, and through a mixture of independent and shared reading, will be answering questions that will require them to interrogate the text in order to retrieve, infer and analyse the language choices made. There will be reference made to the genre of steampunk and an opportunity to look at the language choices that help to create this world.

Synopsis of Text:

We chose this book for a literary leaf as it is an adventure novel set in an alternative London where Zeppelins rule the sky. 13 year-old Lily has no idea why her father has worked so hard to keep her identity a secret. Having exhausted any number of governesses, Lily has been sent to the crumbling red-brick institution of Miss Octavia Scrimshaw’s Finshing Academy for young ladies, under the tutelage of The Kraken, a formidable witch of a woman who thinks young ladies should concentrate on learning to stand up straight and deport themselves properly.

 Lily would far rather be reading the Penny Dreadfuls her father sends her in his monthly care packages, learning piracy and air combat but when Lily's inventor father vanishes after a Zeppelin crash, Lily is determined to hunt down the truth behind his disappearance...
