A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for The Odd Egg

£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: R & KS1, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Year 1

Author(s): Emily Gravett

Main Outcomes:

Diary entry, letter, certificate, Egg Spotter’s Guide (non-fiction report)

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a two-week sequence using The Odd Egg by Emily Gravett. It would be particularly beneficial to cover this during the late spring or early summer term near to Easter and linking to themes of ‘new life’ or when learning about animals and their young. It links to the literary theme of similarities and differences and connections can be made to different types of families and the book And Tango Makes Three. Within this sequence, children begin by identifying different types of eggs and predicting who they might belong to, before exploring the text and its many PSHCE and Scientific links. The final outcome is for children to make a non-fiction ‘Egg Spotter’s Guide’ after researching different types of eggs from the book.

Synopsis of Text:

All the birds have eggs to hatch. All except Duck. When Duck is delighted to find an egg of his own to look after: it's the most beautiful egg in the whole world! But all the other birds think it's a very odd egg indeed - and everyone's in for a big surprise when it finally hatches.
