"We flourish not for our own sake, but so we can look outwards and give."


'Together We Grow: Together We Give' - Ezekiel 47 : 12

Writing Session

WALT: Create images 


  • Look again at the Kingfisher poem

Collect all the hyphenated words and write them out as separate words - here are some examples: 

                             colour-giver                                 fire-bringer                                  flame-flicker

  • Rearrange the words, playing around with the order, creating new partnerships and use these words to create your own spell and write it down.
  • Now find all the compound words in the poems and separate those into their two separate parts. Here are some examples:

rainbow      superswift

  • Add these to your word collection and rearrange, playing around with the order until you are happy with your new spell. Record this.
  • Which do you feel is more effective? Why?
  •  Add music or sound effects as you perform or record your spells.
