Can you figure out how many different phonemes are represented by the ‘ough’ strings in the poem, organise them into groups as you practise writing them:


I take it you already know

Of tough and bough and cough and dough?

Others may stumble, but not you,

On hiccough, thorough, lough and through?

English - ‘Doors – the world of possibility’ by Pie Corbett


Have you ever looked at a door and wondered what might be on the other side? Where may it lead? What may be hiding within? At first glance, a door is just a piece of wood, glass or metal that is opened and closed so that people can get in and out of a room, a vehicle or a space. But in the hands of a writer, a door represents a world of possibility, a world where things are not only hidden but often closed off and restricted. Together, through poetry, text games and narrative, we shall explore the potential that a door offers to you, the writer.


Activity 1: The World we live in. As I write this, the world is in lockdown, shut behind doors for our own safety and the safety of everyone else. Covid-19 has closed schools, closed shops and temporarily closed some of the things we take for granted, like playing in the park with our friends.


Make a list of all the things that you miss doing. You may like to think about some of the following categories:


- seeing family - seeing friends - day to day things - playing sports - exploring your interests - places you love to visit.


Throughout these sessions, you may like to use these personal reflections to inspire and influence your writing.

RE – Gospel: What would Jesus do? (A recap from last term)Gospel means ‘Good News’. There are 4 books in the New Testament of the Bible that make up the Gospel stories, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The 4 Gospel books recount the life of Jesus, the stories he told and the example he set to his followers. So, for Christians, the 4 Gospels share the Good News that Jesus brought to Earth. See the attached document below and explore the questions.
