LO: To understand the key information in a text and consider the author’s perspective

In this lesson, the children will re-read the text they read previously and be guided to find the key information; they will also be guided to reflect upon the author's experience as they read. The lesson culminates with a writing opportunity which will help the children understand that reading helps them understand an entirely different life while building their ability to empathise.

World Book Day!

 

Supervillains!

We want you to create your own supervillain, their powers or aims need to revolve around books. For example - Trevor Vickers; International Story Stealer. Once you have come up with your villain, have a go at the following activities: 

  • Draw and label a crime scene- Where is it? What clues has your supervillain accidently left behind?
  • Create a wanted poster - Draw your supervillain include clothing, accessories and any powers that they have.
  • Write a newspaper article - What has your supervillain done? When did it happen? Were there any witnesses?
  • Imagine you are a newsreader, present the facts of the crime, including a report about the supervillain. (Why not film it and send to Miss Holmes or Mr Drummond!)
  • Make a comic strip detailing the lead up to the supervillains crime. Why did your supervillain become a villain?
