Show the enlarged picture of the cover. Look at the picture and talk to the person next to them about what they see, then encourage them to predict with questions such as:

What do you think will happen in this story?

If the characters/animals were speaking what might they be saying?

Read the story stopping at key points;

  • When Sardul says ‘’ my master is the richest man in the world’
  • When sardul sauntered into the garden, what does that mean?

Ask the children to predict what will happen next, focusing on the Sardul’s decisions and choices:

  • Should Sardul of lied?
  • Why was Sardul so determined to help Jamil?
  • What would you do if you were Jamil?
  • What would you do if you were Sardul? How will the story end?

Make a list when the children have shared a meal together with others - birthdays, anniversaries, for a visitor, in school. Think about why people have a meal with others - to celebrate, to make someone feel welcome, a time with friends. Ask the children to share with the rest of the class a special meal they have had that they enjoyed. Talk about why the meal happened, who it was with and what happened.

Main activity

Hand out circles of paper (the size of the inside, flat area of a paper plate) and ask children to write on them about a special meal they have had. The children can title it 'My Special Meal'. Encourage them to write about why it was special, why they enjoyed it and how it made them feel. This can then be stuck
onto the centre of a paper plate. Children can now use the small squares of paper to draw scenes to accompany their writing - pictures of the food they ate, the people that were there, other things that happened that day. These can be stuck around the edge of the plate.

Alternatively, ask them to draw their special meal straight onto a paper plate and provide a caption to be added underneath.


PLENARY: Read the story of the "Last Supper" to the children or watch it on RE:quest.
Talk about the different feelings Jesus and the disciples must have had. Recap on what Jesus said and
explain to children that Christians today still copy the last supper to help them remember this important event.

Show a video clip of the Eucharist.
There are three videos on this link the third talks about the catholic communion if you wanted to make comparisons.
Ask children to notice things happening that happened in the story of the Last Supper.


Discuss the similarities and differences.
