Judith Kerr Teacher's Resource Pack

"[The Judith Kerr pack] has provided at least a half-term's worth of work. It struck the balance perfectly between informative and allowing a teacher's individual creativity to shape the activities." - Lisa Lowery, Percy Main School, Newcastle upon Tyne

"Next year I plan on using all of the teacher's pack as part of our WWII work." - John Carey, Waterville Primary School, North Shields

Inspired by our acclaimed Judith Kerr Exhibition, this pack is designed to give teachers a framework to create an enriched reading experience of Judith's semi-autobiographical novel, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, exploring the key themes of the story and the events that inspired it.

The pack contains tips and advice on reading the text, activities to explore and enrich further the themes in the book, as well as signposts to how these activities can enrich and support curriculum skills and knowledge.

Pack contents:

  • A film where pupils can "meet" Judith, see the reading journey of pupils and examples of practice to support the resource pack.
  • Teacher's notes and guidance.
  • Copies of Judith's artwork for use in class activities.
  • A copy of all books in the ‘Anna Trilogy’: When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, Bombs on Aunt Dainty, and A Small Person Far Away.
  • A copy each of Mog the Forgetful Cat and The Tiger Who Came to Tea, both of which feature in the class activities.
  • We will also email a PDF copy of the pack, for ease of use and reproduction in the classroom.

Aimed at Key Stage 2, the pack supports creative and active experiences in reading, World War II topics, Personal Learning and Thinking Skills, PHSE, citizenship, literacy and creative writing.
