  1. Beano’s comic strip format features the nation’s favourite characters to inspire readers. With limited text on the page, this can help encourage reluctant readers to engage with the text.

  2. Comprehension questions included in each pack are designed to check pupils’ understanding, such as asking pupils to infer events and feelings from the illustrations, as well as the written text.

  3. A ‘Now it’s Your Turn’ writing task is also included, to encourage children to write independently, linking the events and characters they’ve read about.
