A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for Black Dog

£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: LKS2 / UKS2, Lower KS2, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Year 3

Author(s): Levi Pinfold

Main Outcomes:

Extended story with a point of suspense

Overview and Outcomes:

Children will be reading the book Black Dog by Levi Pinfold and identifying the structure of the text. Children will be looking at the issue of the size of the dog and how it relates to fear and worry. Children will write their own story with suspense based on a fear they might have using the structure of Black Dog. This will have opportunities to embed speech, and adverbials for how, where and when, which they will apply within their own writing.

Synopsis of Text:

A black dog appears outside the Hope family's home. As each member of the household sees it and hides, the dog grows bigger and bigger. Only Small, the youngest Hope, has the courage to face the Black Dog. When it chases her through the forest she shows no fear, so it grows smaller and smaller. Finally, back to the size of a normal hound, the Black Dog is welcomed into the Hope household as their newest addition.
