L.O – To explore understanding of character

Key questions

  • What is the style of Lisa Thompson as an author and how does she create characters?


  • Ask children to read the first page of the book to themselves, then read the same page aloud to the children. In pairs ask children to discuss what impression they get of Lisa Thompson as an author. Week 1’s focus question is on the first teaching slide. Use the next teaching slide to record children’s impressions with evidence. Encourage children to articulate a valid point, then the rest of the children can locate the evidence from page 1 of the text to support the point.
  • Read the rest of Chapter 1 and ask children to scan through the chapter and jot down the characters that are ‘met’ in the opening chapter. Children should note Maxwell, Mum (Amanda), Dad (Eddie), Mrs Banks, Bex and Monster. Explain that Lisa Thompson shares information with characters in different ways. Display the next teaching slide and discuss the points.
  • Using the Character tracker resource, children can choose a character to ‘track’ through the chapter. Depending on the children’s ability, you may want to guide the children’s choice of character or give them the ownership to choose for themselves.
