A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for Firebird

Subscribers Only

KS: LKS2 / UKS2, Upper KS2

Year Group: Year 5

Author(s): Saviour Pirotta

Main Outcomes:

Letters, retellings, own versions

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a two-week planning sequence for Firebird by Saviour Pirotta and Catherine Hyde, in which children begin by making predictions about the story theme and events by exploring images and props from the story, as a golden feather arrives in the class. Children continue to explore new language used within the book and use this to retell, describe and eventually plan and write their own version of a fairytale story, using devices similar to those in the text.

Synopsis of Text:

The firebird is stealing the tsar's famous golden apples. His two oldest sons fail to capture the bird, so their younger brother, Ivan, must set out on a quest to find it. Befriended by the wise grey wolf, Ivan wins the firebird and the hand of the beautiful Princess Helen.
