Subscribers Only

Year Group: Year 2

Author(s): Edward Lear

Main Outcomes:

Poetry, lists, letters, interviews

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a two-week planning sequence for The Owl and the Pussy-cat by Edward Lear, illustrated by Charlotte Voake, in which children explore the themes of the poem, write in role as the characters, create fictitious interviews, create lists of items they can take on their honeymoon and eventually innovate upon the poem to create their own versions. Appropriate terminology is written in bold.

Synopsis of Text:

Gruffalo author, Julia Donaldson, revisits Edward Lear's favourite rhyme in this wonderful new story set in a nonsensical land full of adventure. When their beautiful golden ring is stolen, the Owl and the Pussy-cat must travel far from the safety of the Bong-tree glade as their search for the thief leads them across the Sea, to the Chankly Bore and beyond...

Full of enchanting lyricism this new rhyme, beautifully illustrated by Charlotte Voake, promises to be as important and successful as the original.
