This half term pupils are studying a scheme of work called Be Dramatic! This unit explores a range of dramatic techniques through analysing different types of drama.
It was certain that Ludlow’s parents hated him. ‘Ma was struggling with a buckle around my ankle, her hands shaking from the previous days drinking, while pa was trying to hold me down. Ma & Pa was holding Ludlow down because they wanted to sell his teeth for a profit. Barton was dragging them out one by one until Ludlow escaped!
Ludlow is a very scruffy boy and is very dirty and scraggy.’He stood
and took a good hard look at the boy. He resembled so many city boys,
dirty and skinny’. Ludlow is a thief because he hasn’t got much money
and in the text it says ‘though mainly pick pockets’.Ludlow is also a
fighter and brave because when his’ma,pa and Barton Gumbroot were
ripping his teeth from his jaw he kicked out and fought back even
though he was in attrocious discomfort and pain.
