Can we save the tiger? by Martin Jenkins and Vicky White


This Writing Root is based upon Can We Save the Tiger by Martin Jenkins and Vicky White, but also using the poem The Tyger by William Blake from Songs of Innocence and Experience. Children begin by exploring an argument from another group’s perspective, before going on to read the text. During the sequence of learning, children create posters, persuasive speeches, poems (as well as having the opportunity to lean a poem by heart), explanation texts and discussion texts.  The final outcome gives children the opportunity to research an animal of their choice, before writing and publishing their discussion text.
