This week we had an invention challenge! Each pod designed a new toy and wrote persuasive advertisements to try and sell it. We used empty cereal boxes to design the prototype box for our new products and acted out advertisements during drama. We had great ideas and had great fun!
We have had a great week in school together. This week we have been reading about a real life Irish giant called Patrick Cotter O' Brien who lived over 200 years ago and was 3 metres tall! Learning about Patrick inspired us to imagine that we were giants. First we drew pictures of what interesting and strange things we could do as giants. Then we did some drama together in our pods. We created imaginative scenes in which we acted as giants and we showed our performances to the class. They were really funny! After that, we borrowed ideas from every performance to create a timeline of the day in the life of a giant. We imagined a giant on their first day of school with people who were much shorter than them. We planned and wrote out giant diary entries. They are sounding great and are almost finished! We will share them with you next week.
In our Maths lessons we have started learning about lines and angles. We learned about vertical, horizontal and parallel lines. We used this knowledge in our art lesson. We used our ruler to draw lines to create some very cool pictures. Check them out.
