Kit Wright's Magic Box and our Magic Journey

May 20, 2019

Whilst we were at the Henley Museum, we came across a posed question prompted by the many different travels contained within the Wind in the Willows:  What journey would you like to go on and what would you take with you?


We brought this idea back with us and used it to inform our own work - The Magic Journey - based on the format of Kit Wright's poem.  Instead of 'I will put in the box,  we have, 'I will take on my journey.' The class generated some lovely ideas - hotdogs to cook on the journey to the centre of the Sun; an ebony recorder to play to the different animals along the Amazon; a hedgehog to carry the climbing gear; a dentist's mirror to help fix sharks' fillings in the lost city of Atlantis; a keyboard to join in the rhythms of the beating drums of Africa.  We used these images to create a poem after the style of The Magic Box.
