The Dong With A Luminous Nose Education Pack for KS1/2 English, Drama and Art & Design

Key Stage

KS1, KS2


Years 1-6


The Dong with a Luminous Nose is based on the poem by Edward Lear, which is included here.

Students will learn to use nonsense verse, like Lear, and this resource takes them through inventing creatures, creating the journey, then writing and crafting their own poem.

Additional activities include:

  • Exploring made-up words
  • Looking at why people travel
  • Drawing a ‘Jumblie’ creature
  • Making a ‘Jumblie’ puppet from junk
  • and much more…

Even if you are not seeing a show, these education packs contain numerous ideas for classroom activities. Find out more about current Little Angel Theatre shows and their educational resources here.

Little Angel Theatre in Islington is a home for puppetry and an innovative theatre, which works with its local, diverse community to break down barriers to arts engagement so all can benefit and enjoy this remarkable art form. Download more of its resources here or on its website at
