Dr Walker's Church of England Primary School

An Exceptional Place to Flourish


Today in English I will be reading you the power of reading text, but, not until the end of the lesson .

You looked at some of the book yesterday so to start with I just want you to have a look at the picture below and think about the questions  

- What sort of story are you expecting and why? Non-fiction/fiction

- What do you think this story may be about?

- Do you know any other monsters like this?


Once you have discussed these questions have a look at the video below 


Book Trailer: The Lonely Beast

Now you have watched the video have your opinions on the book changed?

- What do you think the beast is doing, where do you think it is going?

- Does this video remind you of anything?


One last section before you listen to me read you the book. Have a look at the front cover of the book. You will notice it is called 'The Lonely Beast' 

- What do you think it means to be lonely?

- Why do you think the monster is lonely?

Now it is time for you to read the whole story. Watch the video below which is me reading it to you.
