Question time!

How are the two sides of the picture different?

Why do you think they are different?

Is there anything like this happening in our world?

What do you think it would feel like to be in either place?

How might the two cities be different?

What will the people in both cities be like?

Are there any similarities between the two sides?

Would it be possible for the grey side to become like the colourful side again?

What might the different animals be thinking?

Perfect picture!

Can you make a poster or cartoon strip showing how we can look after our planet?

Story starter!

It had been a time of great change. The humans were to blame.

Their world was disappearing inch by precious inch: a lush, sun-drenched land full of colour and life becoming a barren, ruinous, grey wasteland.

What would become of them all? Was there even a future?

Can you continue the story?

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a sentence that uses an apostrophe for omission?

E.g. can not = can’t I have = I’ve he will= he’ll she is= she’s we have= we’ve will not = won’t

Can you write a sentence that uses an apostrophe for possession?

E..g. The tree’s leaves.

Sick sentences!

These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?

The leaves had come of the tree. The grass had gone grey. The sky was grey. Plants had died.
