Boy lesson plans

Six brand new lesson plans for teaching Roald Dahl's Boy: Tales of Childhood create by YPO to explore Literacy and PSHE objectives, whilst exploring themes such as descriptions, colourful characters and information gathering.

The word 'Boy' sits on a pale green background

In Boy: Tales of Childhood, Roald Dahl tells the story of his own early days, from his birth in Wales to his years at boarding school in England. For more information, take a look at the Boy and More About Boy pages.

Use these brand new lesson plans to help students understand autobiography, to imagine what it would be like to leave home for the first time, and to come up with their own drama using Roald's Great Mouse Plot as inspiration.

Explore marvellous themes including:

  • Descriptions 
  • Colourful characters 
  • Information gathering

These read-along resources include extracts, Literacy and PSHE learning objectives, lesson plans and fun activity sheets!
