Writing Imaginative Explanations: Why does the sun shine?

We have been writing imaginative explanations recently, where we answer a question but the answer might not be factual, or the question might be a bit silly! Check out Isobel's explanation of why the sun shines:

Why does the sun shine?

The sun shines because the Sun Man makes the sun shine every morning and tells it to stop every night.

In the morning, the Sun Man tells the sun to rise. Then the sun does. The sun has to do what the Sun Man says because he is magic.

The Sun Man's real name is Supercalafragalisticexpalidocious. He lives on the moon with his wife, the fairy princess. She gave him the magic power.

Every morning the Sun Man wakes up, gets his magic wand, waves it in front of the sun and says "rise and shine." Then the sun has to rise and give us light.

The sun shines because the Sun Man makes it. Without the Sun Man, we wouldn't have light.

By Isobel.


  1. Hi! I'm Andrew from Panmure Bridge School nice to meet you, I really like your imaginnation
    and your creation. You know the sunman's name
    is very hard to pronouce, do you know how to
    pronouce it?

  2. Hi Isobel,

    We like how you wrote about how the sun shines. We think the Sun Man needs to do more work as today it is very cold and cloudy. The sun is very bright.
