We will find out about the naughty cat, called Tuffy, and his exploits during the story.
The book is written in first person from the perspective of Tuffy so we get to find out the different events from his point of view.
The children will be exploring the character of Tuffy; writing a character description. They will write a diary from the perspective of Tuffy’s poor, suffering owner, Ellie, exploring her feelings and her anxieties. Year 3/4 will also write a newspaper report about the unfortunate trip to the vets and a persuasive advert selling night vision glasses. The children will become experts on cats, researching information and organising it into a non-chronological report.
After completing our work on the text, we will focus on a Poetry unit and perform some of Michael Rosen’s poems. The children will also plan and write some of their own poems.
