A simple and chunked lesson to introduce lower ability pupils to the Roald Dahl classic The Landlady. Pupils explore key words in a settler word search before demonstrating their existing knowledge and ability to extract information about the author himself. Depending upon ability pupil are challenged to read a brief extract from the text independently but this could of course be changed to paired, group or a whole class reading if more support is required. Following this, pupils engage in a quiz based upon the extract to introduce an element of competition and encourage them to select and retrieve appropriate information before developing their confidence with quotation retrieval. Where possible, extra challenges have been built in to further stretch more able pupils.
