Then and Now

Then and Now

Question time!

How do you think the lives of the people in the picture are different?

What can you tell about a person by looking at the clothes they wear?

Do you think people that lived 100 years ago had better or worse lives than us?

Choose one of the characters in the picture, either from the past or the present. Can you tell their story? Who are they? Where do they live? How do they live? Where are they going? Who are they with?

Perfect picture!

Choose one person from the picture. Draw or describe 5 items they might have in their pocket or bag.

Story starter!

Wherever we go in our lives, someone has been there before us. It’s sometimes hard to imagine.

When you walk down the street, when you travel to school or work, when you go about your normal, everyday business you are always surrounded by the past. Memories. Moments. Hopes. Dreams. The lives of others are entwined with ours. We may not notice them, we may not see or feel them, but they are there.

Echoes of the past are all around us. If you close your eyes and think, if you close your eyes and let your imagination run wild, you can almost see them. Almost feel them.

As they pass you by, you start to think. You start to dream…

Choose one of the characters in the picture, either from the past or the present. Can you tell their story?

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a sentence that uses two adjectives before a noun? Can you use a comma to separate the adjectives (because they are in a list)?

e.g. The smart, elderly man wore a tall, black hat.

Sick sentences!

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

The man held a coat in his hands. He waited to get on the train.
