Product Description
This engaging and informative lesson helps students to make detailed interpretations about the development of the creature in the garage throughout David Almond’s Skellig. In particular, students comprehend how the character is initially introduced, utilising textual evidence, before investigating how and why the creature transforms throughout the story.

The lesson follows a step-by-step learning journey, in which children learn through:
- Defining and exemplifying the key term 'prejudice', and noting its dangers;
- Reading and comprehending the introduction of the creature through selected extracts;
- Tracking how Michael and Mina's nurture and care helps to transform the creature over the course of the text;
- Understanding the messages that can be learnt from this in terms of prejudice and not 'judging a book by its cover.'
- Creating diary entries detailing the development of the creature;
- Peer assessing each other's learning attempts;

Included is:
- Whole lesson PowerPoint - colourful and comprehensive;
- Development of Skellig Storyboard (pdf and word);
- Extracts from Chapters 1-10;
- Writing to Describe Help-sheet;
- Comprehensive lesson plan.

There are also opportunities for group learning, speaking and listening, peer assessment, and whole class discussion. I originally used these resources with a year 7 class, however colleagues have used them for between years 4 and 9 with minimal adaptations.
