Overview and Outcomes:

This is a three-week sequence for Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver by Martin Jenkins and Chris Riddell. Children will have read Gulliver’s Travels and been immersed in the various settings that he explores. This will be used as a basis for a variety of persuasive short writing opportunities, such as a poster and a leaflet before children move on to creating a logbook. The final longer written outcome will be the children creating their own imaginary lands to use as settings for a new adventure story where they are the explorer.

Martin Jenkins has skilfully adapted the original novel, remaining true to its tone and humour while making it accessible to younger readers.

Award, and shortlisted for the British Book Design and Production Awards, 2005.
