To create a comic strip to show part of the story Giant’s Necklace by Michael Morpurgo.


Watch the tutorial on creating a plan for a comic strip. I have included an example plan of a comic strip in the attachments below. 



Read the PowerPoint on ‘The features of a comic strip’ below so that you understand what you need to include.

Now chose part of The Giant’s Necklace you want to turn into a comic strip.


Remember to:

  • plan your comic strip first
  • draw pictures of the characters and use speech bubbles and thoughts bubbles to put the characters words inside.
  • Aim to do at least 6 frames for your cartoon.
  • Think about what the characters would say to each other.
  • Remember comic strips use more informal language.
