Listen to/watch the video: Demon Dentist by David Walliams – The Prologue Video. You will find it on the Year 4 Remote Learning page, it is a 'star' at the bottom of the page!

What is a prologue?  

A prologue prepares the reader for the story they’re about to read with information that is necessary to have before the start of the novel itself. 


The prologue that David Walliams has written tells us a lot of information about the book before we have even read the first chapter! What I particularly like is how he has ended it with a series of rhetorical questions: 


Who or what was behind it?  

How were they able to do and leave these things without being seen?  

What are they going to do with all the teeth they are stealing? 


Today, I would like you to spend the time answering these three questions and predicting what the story we are reading might be about! If you have ever played the game ‘Cluedo’, treat it like you are accusing someone!  

Tell me: who you think did it, where they are, why they are doing so!   


1215 - 1315 - Lunch


1315 - Enquiry

In the previous lesson, we learnt about the different types of teeth we have and the function (job or purpose) they perform. Today, we're going to 'drill' down (excuse the pun) on the parts of a tooth.
