Overview and Outcomes:

In this three-week, dual-text planning sequence, Pig the Pug by Aaron Blabey provides a stimulus for children to explore character motives and feelings before researching a selection of animals and going on to write an own-version narrative. They are then asked by a character for some help in writing a ‘How to be a …’ guide and using the text, How to be a Dog by Jo Williamson create a similar text for a chosen pet. The sequence includes regular opportunities for use of phonic knowledge and also embeds some of the spelling requirements for year 1. It supports the children into writing for a range of audiences and purposes, developing skills in composition, understanding of a range of punctuation and use of nouns and prepositions to construct a range of sentences and convey meaning.

Synopsis of Text

Pig is the greediest Pug in the world. He is bad-tempered, rude and he never, ever shares. Friendly sausage dog Trevor is always trying to persuade Pig to play with him, but without success. When Pig is asked to share his toys, his greed finally backfires and something unexpected happens to him. Will Pig the Pug learn his lesson at last? A hilarious picture book about learning to share.
