BBC Dynasties ‘Tiger Cubs’ First Exploration Attempts’ Comprehension


Today sees the final episode of Sir David Attenborough and the BBC’s epic natural history series – Dynasties. This episode will star everybody’s favorite big cat, the Tiger, and the BBC have released an adorable clip featuring 4 tiny tiger cubs to stoke interest! You can watch the stunning clip here;

My class have really been enjoying these clips and I intend to use this for one of our whole-class reading lessons early next week. I have written a set of 10 questions that I will use to guide discussion and you can download these, FOR FREE, below! I will watch the clip in full, giving the children an opportunity to ask any questions to support understanding before working through, discussing and marking the questions!
