Roald Dahl Series: Grisly Ends – Lesson Plan for KS1/KS2 Literacy

Key Stage

KS1, KS2


Years 1-6


This lesson plan originally appeared in Volume 6 Issue 5 of Teach Primary magazine

Roald Dahl took traditional fairy stories and turned them into wonderfully wicked ‘Revolting Rhymes’.

In this lesson plan, Dave Lewis shows how, with a structured approach, you can help your class to do the same.

In this lesson, students will explore:

• What makes a poem sound like a poem • How to find rhyming words for your poem (and invent rhyming words if you can’t) • How to turn a well-known story into a poem

You can find even more free Roald Dahl resources here.
