The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Raúf

Blackpool Grand Theatre in partnership with the Children’s Theatre Partnership and Rose Theatre Production has developed a Teacher Resource Pack for The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Raúf.


This pack contains practical activity ideas for teachers to choose from, to be used alongside the study of The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Raúf. Our activities use creative, active approaches to explore different themes. The activities can be used in any order and you do not have to use all of them. They can be adapted for use with different themes and events from the story, or with other stories you study. Activity ideas are split into different sections, which can be found in the contents.
