Join award-winning author and Blue Peter badge holder Pamela Butchart for a fun-filled Authors Live broadcast!

For lots of activities related to Pamela's books, take a look at our Baby Aliens Got My Teacher!(this will open in a new window) learning activities.
If you only do one thing
If your pushed for time but still want to do a classroom activity inspired by Pamela's book There's a Werewold in my Tent, why not ask pupils to create a newspaper report based on the 'Wolf in the Tent' incident?
Produce a school newspaper report LIT 2-28a, TCH 2-04a
Split pupils into small groups and ask them to consider what makes a news report, e.g:
- An journalist's style of writing
- An eye witness interview
- An expert’s account (for example from a doctor, criminal psychologist or police detective).
Ask pupils to look back through the book to compile information that they want to include in their report.
