Plazoom has teamed up with Beano to create comprehension activities based on one of its well-loved comic strips. The comprehension questions will develop pupils’ skills when answering questions that involve retrieval, inference, vocabulary and sequencing. A writing prompt is also included with each resource pack.

What is included in this Key Stage 2 resource?

In this resource, pupils will read a story featuring Beano Town’s top spy - Dangerous Dan. Dan is using his gadgets to wrap Christmas present when he spots a suspicious elf in the workshop. He realises the elf is from S.M.I.R.K (Secret Ministry of Intelligent Rotters Kommittee) and uses his wrapping gadgets to wrap up the elf.
