KS2 English Lesson Plan & Activities – The Taylor TurboChaser by David Baddiel


The Taylor TurboChaser, the latest book from David Baddiel, provides a great opportunity to explore disability and equality with your class.

Amy, the main character, is a wheelchair user and car enthusiast who wants a new design for her wheelchair.

Getting your pupils to design and make a prototype chair for Amy lets them discover the needs and perspectives of those with disabilities.

They'll learn to create functional design ideas for products aimed at specific users, communicate ideas through drawings, use a wide range of tools and create a simple switch circuit.

This download includes the full KS2 lesson plan from Abby King, plus a 14-page PDF of lesson ideas and activities for the book.
