If you only do one thing

We know time is tight, so here is just one activity you could do with your class before or after watching the broadcast.

Speech bubbilcious LIT 1-02a, LIT 1-20a, HWB 1-01a, HWB 1-02a.

Pick a page from the The Heuys to read together as a class. Look and discuss what is happening in the picture. How do you think the Heuys are feeling? How can you tell? What are they thinking? What might they say? Ask each pupil to choose a Heuy and write a speech  bubble showing what they might be saying. Pupils can then share their speech bubbles with the class".
