KS1/KS2 RESOURCE PACK: Lizzie & Lucky

What’s the story?

Meet Lizzie and Lucky: a sparky young detective and her loyal Dalmatian sidekick! Lizzie is desperate for a dog. In order to convince her parents to get one, she has to come up with 101 reasons why she needs one. Lizzie is a master at making lists, so thinking of 101 reasons is going to be easy! Especially as she is deaf and could train one to be her hearing dog. But as Lizzie begins compiling her list, she witnesses an adorable puppy being snatched away and put into a van by a mysterious-looking man. Can Lizzie solve the case – and maybe find herself a loyal friend at the same time…?

This resource pack includes:

Lessons and activities drawing on themes from the story including celebrating difference, using sign language, persuasive writing, mystery writing and pets.  Each lesson uses a different extract from the illustrated story to support comprehension and learning. This resource pack would work well to supporting PSHE and  comprehension development.

Lesson 1 focuses on persuasion and Lizzie’s love of making list. The activity invites children to make their own list and persuade their audience why it’s important.

Lesson 2 focuses on the features of mystery writing. The activity invites children to start planning their own mystery story using the features they have identified to help them.

Lesson 3 focuses on using sign language. The activity invites children to imagine what the world is like from Lizzie’s perspective as a someone who is deaf. There is also the opportunity for children to learn the finger-spelling alphabet and practice finger spelling their name and other words.
