The Rather Interesting Octopus


  • What do you think is interesting about the octopus? What did you already know and what have you learnt? [Challenge children to recreate the image in a group relay.]
  • Why has Matt Dawson presented the facts in this way? What is the effect of the layout on the reader?
  • Who is the intended audience?
  • Why is the fact about camouflage written in a different coloured font?
  • Research a creature of your choice. Present the information in an interesting format.

Teachers – feel free to email any work to
and I’ll add it to the website.
