Synopsis

The Big, Bad City: Band 07/Turquoise by Shoo Rayner

Little Red Hen is looking for Granny's house in the big, bad city. Should she trust the smiley stranger who wants to help her? * Turquoise/ Band 7 books offer literary language and extended descriptions, with longer sentences and a wide range of unfamiliar terms. * Text type - A traditional tale * The story is followed on pages 22 and 23 by a map of Mr Fox's whole route, which is a great way to recap and discuss the story with children and gives an opportunity to extend into further work outside the reading session. * Curriculum links: geography: 'Pupils should be taught to use simple compass directions (North, South, East and West) and locational and directional language [for example, near and far; left and right], to describe the location of features and routes on a map'.
