Question time!

What is it that you think the man holds in his hands?

Where did he get them from?

What clues in the story starter tell you something about what the objects are?

Why do you think people misunderstand the man?

How do you think he feels about the objects he possesses?

Where do you think the man lives?


Perfect picture!

Can you draw what might hatch from the magical eggs?


Story starter!

He carries them around with him everywhere. People often misunderstand him. People misunderstand the power he possesses.

A year ago, he found them deep inside a cave he’d stumbled across in Bulgaria, surrounded by a vast pile of ash from a fire that had long gone out but still gently smoking.

To protect them, he stores them in an egg box, which is a great way of deceiving people, but it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out…


Or you might prefer to write about this picture – UNDERNEATH!

Question time!

Who is the boy and why do you think he is bored?

What do you think he has with him in the boat?

What do you think his family are like?

Where do you think their home is?

Who do you think lives in the city under the ground?

Why do you think the boy has never seen the people who live there before?

Why do they live underground?

Is there anything peculiar about the sea or the tree that is next to it?

What do you think is about to happen to the boy?


Story starter!

On the surface, everything looked ordinary.

The boy in the boat was bored. He had lived beside this boring river with his boring family for his whole boring life. Nothing unexpected ever seemed to happen to him. He often went to bed at night and wished for something exciting in his life.

Little did he know, underneath the ground he walked on and the river he rowed his boat on, a marvellous, mysterious, magical menagerie of life stirred.

His life was about to become a lot more interesting…


Remember to send me your amazing pictures and writing.


This week it is Recycle Awareness Week.

It would be great if you could create a poster either on the computer or on paper to encourage people to recycle.

I have also added a link to a recycling scavenger hunt. You need to find what the different recycling symbols mean and where you might find them.


I have also attached a fun Recycling board game that you might like to play with your family or even better you could design and make your own game.

Have an amazing week and I can’t wait to see everything that you have been upto this week. Mrs Barr x
