The Frozen Palace

Question time!

If the palace could speak, what would it be saying?

Who do you used to live in the palace? Who is living there now?

How would you feel if you lived there?

Where have all the people gone?

Do you notice anything unusual about the tree? Is it a tree?

What do you think the building on the right used to be used for?

Perfect picture!

Imagine what the palace used to look like before everything had become covered in frost and snow. Draw or describe what you have imagined.

Story starter!

Once, this place had been filled with colour and sunshine. Once, this place had seen thousands of people come and go. Once, this had been the happiest of places, filled with laughter and joy.

Now, everything was cold. Everyone was gone. Well, almost everyone…

Can you continue the story? What has happened to the palace? Who is it that remains?

Sentence challenge!

Can you make a list of feelings/emotions to describe how the person left at the palace might be feeling?

Can you write a sentence that begins with 1,2 or 3 emotions?

E.g. Lonely, the Prince…

Nervous and afraid, the Queen…

Frightened, tense, alone, the Princess…

Sick sentences!

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

The sky was blue. Everything was covered in snow. The palace used to be a nice place. Now it wasn’t.
