A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for The Tiny Seed

£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: R & KS1, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Reception

Author(s): Eric Carle

Main Outcomes:

Labels and captions, re-telling, writing in role, narrative, letter

Overview and Outcomes:

In this ten-session sequence, which we suggest will take 3 weeks to cover, the children plant a range of seeds and write instructions for seed-planting before sharing the story The Tiny Seed. They write in role as the little seed, sing a Story Song and then write in the past tense. After exploring the idea of being small but managing to overcome adversity and grow big and strong, the children think about what they would like to become when they are grown up. Then a letter arrives from The Tiny Seed asking for help with giving other seeds advice and the children write a leaflet that will help seeds grow well. Phonics teaching is embedded throughout and suggestions for Continuous Provision are also made.

Synopsis of Text:

Eric Carle's classic story of the life cycle of a flower is told through the adventures of a tiny seed. Everyone will cheer for the seed's progress as it floats across the sky, nestles in the ground, and finally grows into the giant flower it was always meant to be.
