Day 8 - Transition Work
Happy Wednesday everyone!
Today's task is full of joy and it starts with one of my favourite children's illustrators - not just because he is from Belfast, like myself, but because he is brilliant.
I would like you to watch the Ted talk by Jeffers "An Ode to Living on Earth".
Then I would like you to think about something you really like: it could be your favourite subject at school, it could be your pet rabbit, it could be your favourite song.
I would then like you to write an "ode" about it. An ode is a piece of writing that praises something. Think about the details, all the little things. it should bring a smile to your face when you write it.
If you are after a further challenge, think about the most complex idea, theory or topic you studied at GCSE: can you turn it into a children's book by making it really simple and clear?
As ever, I would like to see your ideas.
