The Slab Boys – Homework Task

Good afternoon,

You will find the questions from the powerpoint we used in class today below:


1. What is your initial impressions of the characters introduced so far?
2. How is the generation gap between characters portrayed?
3. How does Alan contrast with the slab boys?

4. What themes are emerging in the early part of the text? (give a brief explanation of why)

These questions should be completed for tomorrow and ready for me to check at the start of the period.

Good Luck…

Morning everyone,

I just want to quickly wish you luck as you wait for your SQA results. Enjoy what you worked for, celebrate your successes and remember that, whether you managed 5 As or didn’t quite get what you were hoping for, it’s just another small step on a much larger journey. Exam results won’t make or break you; what you do with them will.

All the best,

Mr Miller
