Watch author Pádraig Kenny talking about his novel Tin in the following short clip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDsKx6g-PSg

 

“The main idea I had was an image I had of a man attempting to sell a robotic boy to a
childless couple at Christmas. The novel progressed from there.”

 

Think about and record in writing, responses to the following:
• Why is this image so powerful?
• Why do you think Pádraig Kenny chose to open his novel with this scene?
• What impression does this scene give the reader of Mr Absalom and the robotic child
(Jack)?

 

Using this week’s extract, create an illustration to accompany this scene.
• How will you illustrate Mr Absalom, Jack, Christopher and the childless couple?
• How do your illustrations help the reader to gain an understanding of each
character?

Read and enjoy this poem out loud together: The Dentist and the Crocodile by Roald Dahl

https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/89695/the-dentist-and-the-crocodile

 

Read the poem again out loud. Improve how you read it using an excitable voice where needed (expression).
Spot new and interesting words (write them down) and discuss what they mean, e.g. require, repair, quivered, quaked, fearsome, molars, weeping, despair, and any other new words you find.

 

Look up the new words found in the poem to find synonyms (words that mean the same) by using a thesaurus or Word Hippo.  Write these down. This will help to practise spelling some new words and extend vocabulary.
