LO: To use descriptive language to describe the secret garden.


Unit: Time Slips

Tom’s Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce.


  • Read Chapter Three (pdf document).
  • Watch episode 1 of Tom’s Midnight Garden:

Tom has discovered an incredible secret garden.

Think about:

  • Who does it belong to?
  • Why did Aunt Gwen and Uncle Alan lie?
  • What is magical about the garden?



Imagine that you are the first person to have stepped into the secret garden, not Tom.


Describe it from every angle. Describe above you, below your feet, from side to side and in the distance. Use your senses. What can you see, hear, smell, feel / touch, taste?


TIPS: Use WOW words, varied sentence openers, similes, personification and high-level conjunctions.
