A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy

£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: R & KS1, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Reception

Author(s): Lynley Dodd

Main Outcomes:

Character description, writing in role, letters, leaflet, own version narrative

Overview and Outcomes:

In this ten-session sequence, which we suggest will take 3 weeks to cover, the children set up and create labels for an Animal Shelter. Some cats and
dogs arrive and the children help settle them before reading Hairy Maclary. They play Match the Mutt, create a Character Splat, research and write some facts about cats and then
devise a story not dissimilar to Hairy Maclary but this time about a group of cats who are frightened away by Riptail Paw – a dog version of Scarface Claw, the menace of a cat who
appears in Hairy Maclary. Phonics teaching is embedded throughout and suggestions for Continuous Provision are also made.

Synopsis of Text:

Hairy Maclary goes off for a walk in town, followed by a few friends. All is uneventful until they meet Scarface Claw, the toughest tom in town, and run for home. The story is told by a brilliant, cumulative rhyming text and terrific pictures.
