A Literary Curriculum Planning Sequence for Wolves

£9.50  (inc VAT)

KS: R & KS1, R & KS1 / LKS2

Year Group: Year 2

Author(s): Emily Gravett

Main Outcomes:

Non-chronological reports (leaflets), character descriptions

Overview and Outcomes:

This is a three-week sequence in which children receive a letter from the library to say that a book they borrowed is now overdue (the letter foud at the back of ‘Wolves’. Taking the book back to the library, they meet a fairytale character (adult in role), either Goldilocks or one of the three little pigs. The character explains that there are all sorts of ‘rumours’ flying around about wolves. Some people are saying they are good, others saying they are bad. Character asks children to help them find out what is fact and what is fiction and if they can create a leaflet that will educate the townsfolk about wolves so that they can keep safe. Phonics focus: Revision of /aw/ phoneme, e.g. claws, jaws. Learning of alternative spelling of known phonemes, e.g. /oo/ spelt ‘o’, e.g. wolves/wolf.

Synopsis:

Rabbit borrows a book about wolves from the library. Straightforward enough. But it's not long before a sinister figure with sharp claws and a bushy tail starts to creep right off the pages. You won't believe your eyes – especially if you're a rabbit.
