Complete the reading lesson and activities based on ‘You’re a bad man, Mr Gum’ by Andy Stanton. You will need to practise your reading and listening skills before thinking about how the author creates humour and develops character through dialogue.

Read all about Fair Trade and then test your knowledge in the reading activity – make sure you choose the right level of challenge for you.

There is also a reading activity to complete in Around the World this week. Why not find out more about India? (Day 58)
