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 resources pack?
In this resource, pupils will read a story about JJ. She is inconsolable when her drumsticks break during band practice as they were handed down through several generations of drummers in her family. They soon discover that the drumsticks that JJ was using were in fact breadsticks and that he actual drumsticks were back at her granddad’s house.
