No Ordinary Man

No Ordinary Man

Question time!

Who is the man in the picture?

What makes him unlike ordinary men?

What does he carry in his hand and what might he use it for?

Why does he need the blanket?

What has happened to the forest?

Who do the floating feathers belong to?

If you could be more like any animal, or have the features of an animal, what would it be and why?

If there is a bird that cannot fly, is it still a bird? Does such a bird exist?

Do birds live in the sky or on the land?

Do birds weigh less when they’re flying?

Perfect picture!

This man is half human, half bird. Can you draw another creature that is half of one animal and half another?

Describe your creation, perhaps even give it a name!

Story starter!

The figure trod carefully over the layers of broken wood and broken memories. What was once a beautiful forest was now a deserted, lonely wasteland of shattered trees.

He gathered his belongings, flexed his majestic, jet-black wings and prepared himself for the mission ahead. Knowing exactly what he needed to do, he thrust himself up, beat his powerful wings several times and found himself soaring through the smoke-filled sky.

This was to be no ordinary task, but then again he was no ordinary man…

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a sentence containing a relative clause?

E.G. The figure, who had a long, white beard, flew across the sky.

It splits the main clause.

The clause begins with ‘who’, ‘which’ or ‘with’.

It must supply an extra bit of information to the sentence.

Commas should surround the relative clause.

Sick sentences!

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

The man had wings. He flew into the sky.
