Inspire an interest in reading by telling your students about the fascinating life and work of Michael Morpurgo.
This thirty slide Powerpoint covers his early life, his career, marriage and work. Find out the amazing story about how he discovered the identity of his biological father and how the author’s note at the beginning of War Horse was a little white lie until 2011.
Finally there are four choices of activities for students to complete ranging from researching one of his books to writing an article about him.
Students find real lives interesting, so this is a good way to hook them into reading.
It's good to leave some feedback.

This resource was just what I needed to contain research with year 5 and help those particularly who struggle with researching alone. Really well put together and interesting facts. Thank you. S Gauntlett
