Description

This story shows how important it is for people to have friends who care about them even if those friends have different beliefs than yours do—and what happens when those friendships don't work out because of something else. This text follows the relationship of Sam and Davey, where they have a complex friendship. The text considers themes such as friendship and kindness, but also of bullying. It also considers issues such as allergies and could help children to recognise the seriousness of allergies and also raise awareness on what to do if someone suffers from a reaction, as I feel there will always be at least one child in a school who may require an epi-pen. drawing inferences such as inferring characters’ feelings, thoughts and motives from their actions, and justifying inferences with evidence Have children generate their own questions, and explore them independently and with adult facilitation. Should Philosophy for Children be encouraged in your school, Cloud Busting offers plenty upon which to ponder.

The poetry style of the book takes you by surprise at the beginning and offers a different structure to the story and really breaks the chapters down into different almost unique stories of their own. I think this alternative style of story structure just makes the book even more special. My favourite part of the book is when we get to really experience the way that Davey sees the world through the intense descriptions he offers to Sam, this progresses throughout the book and allows us to experience this alternate perception of reality along with them.Throughout these six lessons, your class will become familiar with the main characters in the story. They will infer Sam and Davey's thoughts and feelings, and express this through poetry, diary entries, drama and discussion. Children will make predictions based on their knowledge and understanding of the story, and explore how different characters react to the same event. They will analyse both how and why Sam and Davey change throughout the book, and link this to the themes of bullying, friendship and conformity. Davey’s capacity to perceive the world in a multi-sensory way is one of the talents he passes to Sam. For example, favourite food becomes “…daydreams in your mouth…Or wishes down your throat…” Discuss everyday items and experiences, or use photos of familiar places, and help children develop their use of metaphor by exploring senses and linking one positive idea with another: a delicious taste is wonderful, as are star beams, so favourite food could become “star beams on your tongue”. You can’t taste a star beam; you see it – the effect is achieved by mixing sensory experiences, and it takes a great deal of imagination. As Sam finds, it’s hard at first, but improves with exercise. What actually happened was Sam Cloud Busting alone. Davey, telling no one, slipped away and left Sam alone thinking hard.

As a class, children will discuss what they know, and what they can infer, about the main characters based on their reading so far. In their independent activities, they will rewrite the 'fizzy feet' scene from Davey's point of view. In the alternative activity provided, children are challenged to gather appropriate words and phrases to write a haiku about Davey.

Connecting the curriculum Cloud Busting is a captivating story about one of the harshest aspects of school life for many children – the painful, destructive act of bullying. This story features Sam, the bully and Davey, his victim as the main characters. As is the case in most such situations, Sam is not short of supporters and Davey’s suffering is the sort that would tug at many hearts. This is very much a tale of emotions: pain, fear, confidence at both extremes of the spectrum, the blush of a schoolboy crush and - after a period of reflection induced by a potentially life threatening incident - finally, regret on the bully’s part. increasing their familiarity with a wide range of books, including myths, legends and traditional stories, modern fiction, fiction from our literary heritage, and books from other cultures and traditions

Many scenes in the book lend themselves to exploration through dramatic reconstruction, or even just freezeframing. Last but not least, I would like to end this book review with a poem which I have written by myself: discuss and evaluate how authors use language, including figurative language, considering the impact on the reader explain and discuss their understanding of what they have read, including through formal presentations and debates, maintaining a focus on the topic and using notes where necessary

Looking for something different

Davey and Sam should have gone to the park to go Cloud Busting together and become best friends again, this time not in secret. In conclusion… Cloud Busting describes a life-changing experience, and could be a life-changing book. Questions that will be worthy of deeper discussion may include: Sam makes an almost lethal mistake, and then regrets it. What does he learn? Why are mistakes important? The novel won the Nestlé Children's Book Prize Silver Award [1] and was longlisted for the Carnegie Medal. [2] Plot [ edit ]
