While you are listening to the music, think about the people in your life who you appreciate and why you appreciate them.

Visualising 

Providing children with the opportunity to picture or visualise a character or a place from a story is a powerful way of encouraging them to move into a fictional world and to deepen and enrich their understanding of this world and its inhabitants. Children can be asked to picture the scene in their mind's eye, walk around it in their imaginations or reimagine it drawing on their insights from the text. Finally they can bring it to life by describing it in words or recreating it in drawing, painting or three-dimensional form. 

 

  • Using modelling clay or play dough in varying shades create your own Dog/Magpie inspired creature. (If using modelling clay allow for the opportunity to return at a later date to paint the model using acrylic paint once the model is dry). Which parts of each animal will you use to form this hybrid?
  • Consider the ways in which the two compliment one another physically and emotionally. Note their thoughts in the grid below: 

  • Using the frame below  compose a poem from the perspective of the either Dog or Magpie. The frame should aid you in structuring their ideas, you can choose to either use the writing frame below or write freely as inspired by the lessons and vocabulary generated over the course of the work accumulated so far.

  • Look at your first draft with someone if you can, then refine your poem based on the feedback and response.
