Good Morning Leaders

It’s nice to see so many of you posting or e-mailing about all the things you have been doing. I’d like to set a mission for anyone who has not yet had a go at doing so – see if you can upload or send something in by the end of the day.


Today I would like you to listen to Kit Wright’s poem ‘The Magic Box’. We are going to use his poem as a base for our writing using a door. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zkpmhyc

Write 6 different sentences about what you might find behind the magical door.

E.g. I opened the magical door and saw…. shadows dancing


Continue taking your temperatures at the 3 chosen times of the day and either add them to your data collection or plot them on your graph if you are doing this as you go along.

Are you beginning to notice anything about the temperatures you have taken?

Door Design

Time to get creative and think about the door that you would like to use in your writing. It could take you anywhere, opening a world of different possibilities.

The door is usually the first thing that you see that would invite you inside. Think about how you want your door to make the reader feel.  There can be decorated doors found in a number of different countries – have a look at the ones below.

You might want to think about decorating an actual door (please ask permission first) or drawing and colouring or painting your design on paper.
