Overview and Outcomes:

This is a seven-day planning sequence for Winter’s Child by Angela McAllister, in which children explore and are immersed in the theme of the story, making predictions about what might happen if you are not careful what you wish for. Children continue to explore the themes and language of the text, particularly identifying noun phrases and prepositional phrases and how they are used to create images. Children go on to predict what might happen after the story, as it becomes spring, and write their own simple sequel, applying the grammatical skills learnt.

Synopsis of Text:

When Tom wishes winter would never end, he meets another boy who shares his love of snow and ice. Playing together every day, Tom hardly notices that spring doesn't come - until he realises the terrible effect of unending winter is having on the countryside and his sick grandma. His friend is Winter's child, and for the seasons to go on the friends must say goodbye until next year.
