Picture news - Read about what has been happening around the world



Lessons 1 + 2.

Watch the video 'Megacity'. It is about a boy and his dog.


Your Task: to write a short story based on the video. 

If you are struggling to write a whole story, use the sheet with 9 pictures from the video. Write a sentence to describe what is happening in each picture. - LINK TO THE VIDEO.



Questions to help you think about your story:

Who is the boy?

What is the dog's name?

What is the boy doing and why?

What does the boy really want in life?

What do you think the dog wants in life?
