1 Instructions Use the following PowerPoint slides to stimulate creative writing. You can use this presentation in its entirety or else show the children a slide a day!

2 This old mirror belongs on the staircase of an abandoned manor house. Imagine you are the mirror – who have you seen pass the stairs? What strange events might you have witnessed? © 2007 JUPITERIMAGES CORPORATION

3 Imagine you are in a grand ballroom with a sparkly mirror ball hanging high from the ceiling. Why are you there? Who are you with? What can you see? What can you hear? How does the lighting from the mirror ball affect the mood? © HAKILL/STOCK.XCHNG

4 Which way round is this photo? Water can reflect a near-perfect mirror image. Imagine you are standing on the edge of this vast lake. Write a poem to describe the beautiful scene. © SVERES/STOCK.XCHNG

5 You find this mirror and matching items in a lost property box. Write an advert to try to trace their owner. Who might they belong to? What are they made from? Are they valuable? Are they old or modern? © 2007 JUPITERIMAGES CORPORATION

6 Christmas baubles act like tiny mirror balls as they sparkle on a Christmas tree. If you were a bauble, describe the delights of Christmas time from the view on your branch. © WOODSY/STOCK.XCHNG

7 Take a handheld mirror and hold it up so you can see your reflection. Write a poem to describe what you can see. Remember to focus on all the wonderful features that make you a special and unique person. © 2007 JUPITERIMAGES CORPORATION

8 Imagine you are a secret agent. This ordinary- looking compact mirror is in fact a spying device. Write a report to your boss, detailing a recent mission you undertook where you were able to use your spy mirror to obtain secret information. © 2007 JUPITERIMAGES CORPORATION

9 Use the back of a clean metal spoon to check out your reflection. How do you look? The effects can be similar to those of a fairground mirror which can distort your appearance. Write a poem – using as many adjectives and similes as you can think of – to describe your new alien-like appearance. © WOODSY/STOCK.XCHNG
