A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for A Walk in London

KS: R & KS1, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Year 2

Author(s): Salvatore Rubbino

Main Outcomes:

Tourist guides

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a three-week sequence for A Walk in London in which children read the book and create a local version of 'A Walk in.....' using two styles of writing, recount and information. Initially, after a first trip out, they will focus on the recount, but after they will return on the walk purely with a fact-finding mission in mind. In the final part, they will merge both styles of writing to create a new guide for the chosen area. All of this will be a response to a letter received from a local councillor asking the children if they can come up with a better guidebook, or new guidebook for the place in mind. Finally they will publish their outcomes and present to one another in the class.

Synopsis of Text:

London - the perfect place for a girl and her mother to spend the day! Follow them as they board the classic red bus and begin a whirlwind tour of some of London's most iconic landmarks. Try to climb the awe-inspiring lions at Trafalgar Square, take in the ritualistic Changing of the Guard, experience the whispering gallery at St Paul's and - if you're lucky - you may even spot the Queen! In this paean to Britain's bright and bustling capital city, Salvatore Rubbino's fresh, lively paintings and breezy text capture the delight of a young visitor experiencing the wonders of London first-hand. And of course, what's London without a little rain?
