Listen to Chapter 4 – Blacker than Black 

Oh poor Alfie, Miss Root was horrible! How would you feel if she had done that to you? I know I would be mortified!  

I would like use to now step into Alfie’s shoes and imagine we just went through what he just did!  

To start let’s think about feelings... create a mind map to describe what different emotions he may have gone through!  

Next, I think it is important for us to map out exactly what happened to Alfie.  

There are a few ways we can do this: 

  1. Story map 
  2. Comic strip  
  3. Flash cards  
  4. List of sentences
