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 pack?

In this resource, pupils will read a story featuring Beano Town’s Dennis and Gnasher. Dennis’s dad orders a new toaster but it is not an ordinary toaster! When the family decide
to send it back, the toaster takes over the Wi-Fi and will only allow the family to watch their favourite TV shows online if Dennis continues to eat toast. Eventually, Gnasher distracts the toaster and it is returned. Will their new toaster be any better?
