A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for Jim, A Cautionary Tale

Subscribers Only

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

Year Group: Year 3

Author(s): Hilaire Belloc & Mini Grey

Main Outcomes:

Narrative poetry (cautionary tales), performance poetry

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a two-week sequence using Cautionary Tales by Hilaire Belloc in which children begin by exploring a range of scenarios and their consequences, in order to make predictions about the contents of a number of tales. Children then go on to read a number of these tales, eventually innovating upon a known cautionary tale before planning in detail. Additional texts/poems: Have a selection of other cautionary tales available for children to read, e.g. others by Hilaire Belloc, and by David Lucas. Make these available in the class library and use during the teaching of Reading.

Synopsis of Text:

Award-winning illustrator Mini Grey turns her inimitable hand to Hilaire Belloc's classic cautionary tale of Jim: who ran away from his Nurse and was eaten by a Lion!

First published in 1907, Belloc's wickedly funny poem describing the sad end of Jim is now fabulously illustrated by Mini Grey for this extra-special new edition. A perfect gift with much to explore...
