Experiencing life with no colour!
We used torchlight to read in a dark room. This helped us to think about faces with no expression and living on an island with no colour.
Wendell’s magic hands
We used our torches, like Wendell’s hands, to pick out colour in the dark. When we saw the plant in the light it made us think of Wendell and Opal escaping through the castle gardens.
When we finished reading Grey Island Red Boat, we discussed where we thought Wendell and Princess Opal might be travelling to. This led us to think, once again, about the island that Wendell came from. Some of the Gladiators chose to draw their ideas – one island even has a Christmas tree that is newly decorated every day!
One of our Year 2 Gladiators was so excited to make shadow puppets that she made them at home with her mum for the group to share!
Grey Island Red Boat in a boat! Exciting!
