Question time!

Why is today the most important day of his life? What is supposed to be happening?

Who is ‘he’?

What has happened to him?

When did it happen?

What caused him to finally realise what happened?

How will he find help?

Why is he wearing gloves?

What will he do next?

Can you have a go at writing the content of the letter?

Perfect picture!

Imagine you have just turned invisible. Can you draw the first thing you would do?

Story starter!

Just minutes before, everything had been completely normal. He had sat eating his breakfast at the kitchen table, as he did every day of his life.

It was only when he looked in the mirror that he realised something was wrong. For several seconds he had panicked, and a sick feeling grew in his stomach. His mouth felt dry and he started to sweat as he sprinted from room to room, trying in vain to find a reflection.

How could this have happened? Of all days, why did it have to be today? This was the most important day of his life. He had to find help…

Sentence challenge!

Adverbs describe how something is done. They make a sentence better by adding detail to the verb.

For example:

The pen scribbled frantically across the page.

Can you add an adverb to the following sentences to add detail to the verb?

The man dashed from room to room.

He wrote on the paper.

He stared into the mirror.

His heart pumped inside his chest.

Sick sentences!

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

The man looked in the mirror. Could it be true. Was he really invisible. He looked back at his reflection but he couldnt see anything He was scared?
