Up in the clouds

Question time!

How high do you think the man is?

Why is he up there? Can you think of different reasons for his presence?

What do you think the building is?

Do you think the weather is the same at the top as it is at the bottom?

Why is his heart pounding?

What would happen to your body if you were that high up?

Are you afraid of heights?

Can you tell your group about a time you’ve been afraid?

How did you overcome your fear?

What’s the highest off the ground you’ve ever been?

Perfect picture!

Imagine you are stood where the man is. Can you draw a picture of what you could see if you looked down?

Story starter!

Holding on tightly to the support rope, the man made his way towards the top.

The wind blew strongly, and despite being constructed from iron the structure seemed worryingly flimsy as it shook.

His heart pounded; he was looking forward to having his feet on solid ground again soon.

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a description of what you could see if you looked down?

Describe the buildings and the people that you could see.

Sick sentences!

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

The man walked up the path towards the top. He was wearing warm clothes. It was windy. He was scared.
