Is anyone teaching their year 7s 'The Terrible Fate of Humpty Dumpty?'

    I have taken over a class of bottom set year 7s who are looking at a play that was written in the 1980s called 'The Terrible Fate of Humpty Dumpty' and just wondered if anyone else was studying it?

    I have done in the past - kids love it! It's great for combining with phse stuff on bullying.

    yeah. This particular class has an issue with bullying. Some are getting bullied by years higher than them. That is being dealt with by the school, but we are doing work with the kids to encourage them to report it.
    But then the other issue is how some of them bully each other. I had to send one kid out for bullying during class last week.
    So, do you have any good resources you can tell me about? I found an online 'game' which is like blockbusters but asking questions on the play.

    I have a few resources - but most of the work was oral work. Post your email and I'll send what I have. The main piece of work was a newspaper report but I can't find my resources. We also did a monologue from one of the girl's viewpoints. Oh yes - they also did an extra scene at the end which they acted out.

  6. Could I also have a copy of the resources for 'The Terrible Fate of Humpty Dumpty'? About to teach it too.
    My email is: rajiekaur@googlemail.com
    Thanks.
     
  7. You don't happen to know what the reading age/level for this book is, do you?
