Reading - Shark Puncher - By Jessica Townsend

Predict - Who or what is a 'Shark Puncher'?

Clarify - Find the definitions of these words using a dictionary. You may need to search for the root word e.g. Improbably > improbable. 

  • improbably - 
  • glanced - 
  • guttural - 
  • indignant - 


  1. Why does the girl shout 'my mum's a shark puncher'?
  2. While they are talking, how can you tell the girl is scared of the shark? (3 marks)
  3. On page 132 find and copy a word that means 'work out or make sense of'. 
  4. What does the girl mean when she thinks the shark might understand the language of teeth?
  5. Why does the author use the phrase 'they parted as friends, sort of'?

Summarise - In 2 sentences tell me about the meeting of the girl and the shark (Leonard). 



Write a character description of the girl from Shark Puncher. Think about how her personality changes from their first meeting to them parting as "friends". 

Think about her appearance, actions, thoughts and feelings.

What does she do? What does that tell us about her as a person?
