  • What is missing from Marinka’s life, and how is the house preventing her from getting this? 

(Please answer the above questions in full sentences, using words and quotes from the text) 

Challenge Task: In the House with Chicken Legs, death is portrayed as a journey. Marinka’s grandmother, Baba Yaga, acts as a guide on this journey- helping souls move from this world to the next through ‘The Gate’. 


  • A soul can be thought of as part of someone that is separate from their body. Try drawing and labelling a picture to represent your soul. Think about what makes you, you to help you...

-What is important to you? E.g. Being kind, your family...

Yesterday, you began to think about the task and which era of history you would like to learn about/research. Today, I would like you to choose the era of history that interested you the most and begin to research the all the games from that era e.g. Egyptians. You can use books or with adult supervision you can use online websites to help you research. 

If you want more ideas, then please look at my reflective journal and the notes I have begun to make notes about the era which excites me. 

When adding to your existing mind map remember to include: 

  1. The era of history you are researching 

  1. What have you discovered about the different games? 

  1. Begin to consider which game interests you the most? 

Tomorrow, you will be using this research to help you begin to think about how to make your own version of your chosen game.
