Sad and all alone,

You make my tears disappear

With your touch of joy.

You shepherd me.

Forever in your home.

Read the story ‘Dr Scorpio Strikes Again (Part 2)’

Here are some ideas for questions to ask

> Comprehension: visualising

Close your eyes and imagine you are Captain Blade, climbing the tower. It is hot;

flaming globes and robotic wasps are flashing past you. You can hear a terrible

buzzing all around. How do you feel?

> Vocabulary development The author said, ‘One prick from those deadly stingers and all would be lost’. The phrase ‘all would be lost’ is an expression, but what does it mean?

> Grammar: using an apostrophe for possession

Look at the words ‘Captain Blade’s sword’. The sword belongs to Captain Blade,

so we use an apostrophe. Can you fi nd another example in this text where an

apostrophe is used to show that something belongs to someone?

> Genre: narrative Narrative texts are written in the past tense. Can you name all the verbs in the past tense in the fourth paragraph?

> Vocabulary development: synonyms

Dr Scorpio appeared in a giant robot suit. Can you think of other words with a similar

meaning to the word ‘giant’?

> Grammar: conjunctions Look at the sentence ‘She knew it might mean the end for Goodville, but she couldn’t let Jamie die.’ Can you spot the joining word, or conjunction, that joins two sentences together to make this one long sentence?

> Grammar: exclamation marks

The sentence ‘We have failed!’ ends in an exclamation mark. Can you fi nd other

exclamation marks in this text? Why has the author used them?

Illustrations are very important in stories. Take a close look at Dr Scorpio. Do you

think he looks like the hero or the villain?

Vocabulary development: synonyms

Look at the word ‘sneering’. Can you think of another word that you could use here?

Grammar: pronouns Remember, pronouns are words we use instead of nouns. Look at the sentence:

‘She had a plan.’ What is the pronoun in this sentence? What noun has it replaced?

Comprehension: comparing

Dr Scorpio and Captain Blade are very different characters. In what way are they

different?

Comprehension: making connections
