The Teacher Guide provides fully developed lesson ideas, activities and samples of pupils’s work. Particular emphasis is placed on oral language activities in an attempt to maximise the potential for focused discussion. Actual classroom displays and projects completed by different classes are included to inspire teachers to build a unit of work around the story.
The Teacher Guide provides photocopiable scaffolds, worksheets, word banks and guided reading question mats, so that teachers have the resources to help pupils engage deeply with the book.
