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.
In this resource, pupils will read Dennis and Gnasher Unleashed. Dennis refuses to eat his dinner but still wants pudding. Will he get through the traps his parents have set to reach the biscuits? Pupils will answer questions about the story, then write their own tale ‘The Search for the Biscuit Tin’ using ideas from the comic strip.

Pupils should check that they understand what they read by
- checking that the text makes sense to them ... checking the meaning of words in context.
- drawing inferences such as inferring characters feelings, thoughts and motives for their actions, and justifying inferences with evidence.
Pupils should plan and discuss their ideas for writing.
