One of the UK’s best-loved author illustrators, Lauren Child, spends an uplifting half hour with Helen, discussing her own characters, illustrating other people’s words, and how to spot a good idea when it comes to you.
This resources pack supports children as they come up with a ‘cast of characters’ of their own, before putting them into a story that may or may not feature Pippi Longstocking, too! It includes teacher notes, a PowerPoint, planning sheets and beautifully designed elements for a working wall, and has been exclusively created to be used with episode 19 of the Author In Your Classroom podcast – a virtual ‘author visit’ you can share with children whenever you like, absolutely free!
The resource pack includes:
- Extract from Pippi Goes Aboard, by Astrid Lindgren
- Images and author quotes for a working wall display
- Planning sheets 1, 2, 3 and 4
- Teacher notes
