Would you like to develop comprehension skills using fun, engaging texts that your pupils will love?
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’ and will find out why mixing lights and darks in the washing machine is NOT a good idea. They are then asked to create their own comic strip about another device that goes wrong!

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.
