Great foreshadowing in those.

The Cloudbusting machine in the video was designed and constructed by people who worked on the Alien creature [12] [13] and bears only a superficial resemblance to the real cloudbusters, which were smaller and with multiple narrow, straight tubes and pipes, and were operated while standing on the ground. [14] In a reference to the source material of the song, Bush pulls a copy of Peter Reich's A Book of Dreams from Sutherland's coat. [6] This book is amazing I read it at school in guided reading I reccomend it to anyone who is ready to read chapter books it is not hard to read at all The different people involved in bullying, and how they see the situation from their own perspective. Sam makes an almost lethal mistake, and then regrets it. What does he learn? Why are mistakes important? Sam changes dramatically through the book. Is it for the better? He used to fit in; now he doesn’t: what does he have instead? Consider how people change; how might you change, in the next few years?This is a poem so its different to what i would usually have. There were lots of different techniques of poem structures. Some were rhyming and some were haikus. I wrated it a 3 because it was very easy and i didn't understand it at first but then i got the point of it. This book is suitable for KS2 pupils who have already started using poetry and are aware of the different poetic techniques. Many scenes in the book lend themselves to exploration through dramatic reconstruction, or even just freeze-framing. Try a conscience corridor/ decision alley to examine Sam’s decision not to chase after Davey in Chapter 11:

this is an amazing book and very emotional. brilliant for both girls or boys. I could read it again and would definitely recommend it. I read this with my Y7 class. I've never taught a novel-in-verse before let alone read one. The different styles of poetry are used effectively to enhance the build up of story and character. Sam and Davey are wonderful characters and I appreciate how the situation is told from a 1st hand perspective - a very different perspective I might add. Narrated in verse, Cloud Busting, which was shortlisted for the 2004 Nestlé Smarties Book Prize (age 6-8 category), is an exploration of an unlikely friendship between two very different boys. Sam is the Class Bully and he makes Davey, who is imaginative, instinctive - a born poet, in fact - the Class Idiot. But gradually a close relationship develops between them as Davey opens Sam's eyes to a whole new world: one that is alive with words, rhythm, music and colour, and the boys become Best Friends - but only in secret.One of the most original and moving books of the year . . . an absolutely remarkable book Daily Mail

My friend lent me this book. I enjoyed reading it as the book was written in a different way to the books I normally read. The whole book is written is verse and is very easy to read as the words flow. The story was sad in places and shows you the importance of friendship.The story takes place mainly in a school environment. Most of the characters in the story are students, including the main characters. Prepare children for the key themes of the story by discussing their ideas of belonging and times when they have felt the need to conform. Warm thinking up with open questions such as, “Is it important to fit in?” and “Do we all see things in the same way?” Have children think about other stories from books, television and film where “difference” defines a character and marks them out for bullying, for greatness, or maybe both. 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.

Chapter 1 is the introductory chapter. It first tells us that the scene is in a school setting. The students get some homework; to write a poem (link to how the whole of the book is written in different forms of poetry).Almost everyone gets bullied at some point in their life–so if this is happening to your child, they are not alone.
