A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for Can We Save the Tiger

£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: LKS2 / UKS2, Upper KS2

Year Group: Year 6

Author(s): Martin Jenkins

Main Outcomes:

Letter, explanation, persuasive poster, persuasive speech, balanced argument

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a three-week teaching sequence based upon Can We Save the Tiger by Martin Jenkins and Vicky White, but also using the poem The Tyger by William Blake from Songs of Innocence and Experience. The sequence begins by asking children to explore an argument from another group’s perspective, before going on to read the text. During the sequence, children create posters, persuasive speeches, poems (as well as having the opportunity to lean a poem by heart), explanation texts and discussion texts. The final outcome gives children the opportunity to publish their discussion text as a newspaper article.

Synopsis of Text:

Tigers are big, beautiful and fierce. But, like many other animals, they are in danger of becoming extinct. With breathtaking illustrations this large-format picture book tells us about the threats to the many endangered species on our planet and the need to prevent their extinction.
