A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for I Am Henry Finch

Subscribers Only

KS: R & KS1, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Reception

Author(s): Alexis Deacon

Main Outcomes:

Thought-bubbles, lists, commands, letters of advice

Overview and Outcomes:

In this ten-session sequence, which we suggest will take 3 weeks to cover, the children think about thinking! Henry Finch has his first ever thought and he quite likes it. Children explore ideas around how to think but also about what makes them unique. Following a Mini Mindfulness session, the children help a Finch who is struggling to manage his own thoughts and write a guide on How to Think. Phonics teaching is embedded throughout and suggestions for Continuous Provision are also made.

Synopsis of Text:

From award-winning picture book makers Alexis Deacon and Viviane Schwarz comes an enlightening new story about courage and making a difference. For budding philosophers of all ages, this is the uplifting story of Henry Finch the loveable little bird who strives for greatness, gets it all a bit wrong, then makes it right again in a very surprising way - truly becoming great. Henry Finch is a total inspiration. This is an inspirational book. It is also very funny. I Am Henry Finch is a book for everyone - from the very young to the very old. It is for dreamers, philosophers, artists, the foolish and the enlightened. And anyone with a big bright idea. Vegetarians will love it too. A profound picture book experience told with simplicity and style.
