This tree contains a portal – a doorway to another world.

 

Answer these questions in your head.

What do you think has caused the destruction all around the tree?

Why has this one tree survived?

If you walked through the portal, what would happen to you? What would you see?

If this was a portal to another world, would you go through it or stay on Earth, even if you had no idea of what could happen?

 

The tree was all that remained. A solitary figure, it stood there in defiance of the destruction surrounding it. The bark had begun to peel away, one piece at a time, joining the wreckage of other trees that lay scattered across the scorched earth.

This tree was different to the other trees: it contained magic; it contained hope…

Choose a task:

  1. Continue the story.
  2. Write a detailed description of the landscape.
  3. Write a detailed description of what you might see as you step into the portal and out into a different, more hopeful world.

Year 5 – Make sure that your CL and FS are correct and try to use dashes to add extra information.

Year 6 – Make sure that you include different types of punctuation and powerful vocabulary please.
