A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for The Dragon Machine

£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: R & KS1, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Year 2

Author(s): Helen Ward

Main Outcomes:

Dragon guide and encyclopedia (reports), dragon machine explanation, letter of advice, shopping list, description, letters in role, own version of story

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a three-week planning sequence using the text The Dragon Machine by Helen Ward, in which children are initially engaged by noticing a dragon tail and then going on a dragon hunt across the school. Children then create a guide, exploring descriptive and positional language. They engage with the main character in the story’s thoughts and emotions through letter writing. Throughout the sequence, children explore a number of spelling patterns and rules from the Y2 Programme of Study and these are specifically edited for in their final outcome of an extended ‘dragon machine’ story.

Synopsis of Text:

This touching story about a lonely boy with a passion for dragons, shows the power of the imagination to free the spirit, and highlights the importance of friendship.
