Break time/snack time

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!

You need to keep your body active so that your brain can keep active too.


11:00 – 12.00

English - This is a PRIORITY lesson

LO: to create a layout for a comic strip/ graphic novel

SC1: I can experiment with panels (size and shape)

SC2: I can illustrate my comic

SC3: I can create a story through illustrations

You are going to create your story board/illustrations today. Watch my tutorial to find out how to go about doing this.




Think about these things…

What might you include so that the reader understands Ug’s inspiration as well as the outcome? Will you show the reader Ug facing whatever difficulty or challenge prompts his attempted invention, as Briggs does on the sports page? Will you show him attempting to build something, like on the page where he is carving the ‘boat’? How will you show the outcome of his attempts? Will we see another character’s response to his ideas or Ug’s response to his own failure?

Create a very simple story mountain/plan of your story for Ug. Make sure you include what he is finding difficult, the ideas he comes up with to solve it and it is up to you if he manages to create the invention.

Step by step guide: 












You can either use my example comic strip board or you can create your own. You need to draw the pictures that tell your story. Think carefully about everything you need to include. You might be able to ‘magpie’ some ideas from the book.
