Opening Doors

Question time!

Who is the man in the picture?

What do you think might be inside both rooms?

How did the lamp get there?

If the doors above were portals into the future and the past, which door would you visit first and why?

Is there more of the past or the future?

Should we think more about the past or the future? Is it important to think of both? Explain your thoughts.

Perfect picture!

If you could walk through a door into anywhere, what would it look like? Draw a picture of the place you have chosen/imagined.

Story starter!

Two mysterious portals had appeared in the twilight. The first door burst open and beams of light poured through, filling the countryside with a warm, amber glow.

Sleepily, a man stumbled over the cool grass in a dream-like trance. The Earth seemed to stand still. Everything seemed to have stopped. All he could hear was the distant rumble of thunder, and the constant drone of the television within.

He was now just a few steps away. What lay beyond the mysterious door ahead? What might that world be like?

Sentence challenge!

Make a list of adverbs to describe how the man moves as he approaches the door. Can you write a sentence that begins with one or two adverbs?

E.g. Slowly, the man ambled towards the doorway…

Sleepily and cautiously, he stumbled across the grass…

Sick sentences!

These sentences are 'sick' and need your help to get better!

The man walked across the grass. The door was open. There was a light.
