Question time!

Why is the man all alone?

Who is he?

Is he a real person?

What do you think is happening in the picture?

Is it real, or part of his imagination?

Why has the artist chosen to use darker colours in this picture do you think?

What questions would you ask the man if you were beside him?

Perfect picture!

Imagine you could see the wind. Can you draw what it would look like?

Story starter!

A man stood alone by the shore. There was something different about the wind that day…

Sentence challenge!

Can you write a paragraph describing the movement of the leaves as they are blown from the tree?

Focus on using interesting verbs, adjectives and adverbs.

E.g. As the harsh wind blew, crisp, black leaves danced from their branches, leaping gracefully through the air like tiny dancers before finding their resting place on the ground below.

Sick sentences!

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

A man stood by the sea. It was nearly night. Next to him was a tree. Something strange was happening.
