Begin by showing the children the poster of the door. A particularly effective way to introduce the image is to display the poster full size on your interactive whiteboard as soon as the children enter the classroom without giving any initial explanation. The children will inevitably start talking among themselves about the meaning of the image. After a short time, invite the children’s initial thoughts. Encourage one-word responses – the first thing that pops into their heads – and make clear from the start that there are no right or wrong answers.
