A Robin Hood comprehension activity that is a general comprehension with levelled activities attached- This I have done with my mixed aged (Year 3-Year 6) class with great success pitching the more able children at which ever activity is suitable to them like the mild, chilli, spicy, hot, very hot approach with children progressing at their own pace - this is a stand alone lesson but would fit ideally with reading and legends and myths as a class and has intitiated great discussion and debate as many of the class are fully aware of the legend of Robin Hood !
I hope this helps and is ideal as I say for a one off lesson !

An ideal Powerpoint and stand alone lesson to introduce the story The Iron Man by Ted Hughes - A fantastic activity to get the children ( Y3,4,5) to ask questions about the text working in pairs or bigger groups. It worked really well if the question sheet was printed off in A3 - discuss with them the type of question they could ask and which one they would get more information on e.g open rather than closed type of question.
Although not the start of book it proved successful to get the class thinking about the new text - enjoy !!
