Y2 WEST 2019/20
Welcome to the 2019-20 Reading Gladiators™ challenges. Let the reading begin!
Detective Gordon-Role on the wall (Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol)
Alfie labelled his toad with as many pieces of information as he could. It shows clearly that ( as Alfie’s read up to Chapter 11) he has a very good understanding of the character Detective Gordon.
Ava’s visualisation-Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol
Ava drew her idea of what the police station would have looked like. As you can see, some of the children saw things in a similar way. Well done Ava!
Alfie’s visualisation-Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol
Alfie drew his visualisation of the police station for homework.He used the information from the passage to inform his drawing.Stunning work Alfie!
A Detective Gordon Story-The First Case (Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol)
Skyla started her visualisation of the Police Station. We all thought Skyla’s 3D glass cabinet with a pistol and baton was brilliant! The prison bars are thick and would make sure that the public are safe. Skyla said that the three cake tins in the middle of the room enable the Chief of Police to eat whilst drinking cups of tea ( helping him to solve the case of the: Missing Nuts).
The First Case:A Detective Gordon Story Visualisation (Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol)
Amelia drew her visualisation of the Police Station.We loved the tea making area in the kitchen where Amelia said that the Chief of Police could make his cups to tea to keep him awake. Beautiful work Amelia!
Year 2 -A Detective Gordon Story-The First Case: Visualisation of the Police Station (Bridge Learning Campus)
This annotated/labelled drawing is Theo’s visualisation of the Police Station. We particularly like the Chief of Police laying down in his bedroom at the Police Station. A very happy looking toad!
Submission by Bridge Learning Campus
Mrs Noah’s Pockets mini-challenge-Year 2 Bridge Learning Campus, BRistol
A wonderful group collaboration to create patchwork squares to cover Mrs Noah's cloak.The children used all different types of mark-making skills, patterns and colours to produce and outfit for Mrs Noah. They made 3D pockets out of the same patchwork squares and filled them with troublesome creatures just waiting to be set free.
Mythico Woods-Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol
Ava drew a beautiful map of the mysterious woods, indicating where creatures might be found. She thought carefully about the habitats that each creature might live in.
Design a place of Safety-Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol
Ava decided to create a Stilt house. The idea being that in an emergency the house would be raised on stilts to prevent it from flooding.
Design a place of safety -Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol
Alfie drew a design for a flood proof home.
He used ‘floaties’ which he said were recycled materials that would keep the home afloat.
Mr and Mrs Noah’s characteristics-Bridge Learning Campus,Bristol
Skylar was able to draw visual representations of Mr Noah and Mrs Noah. Skylar sorted characteristics for each of the main characters in the story.
Skylar’s design for a flood proof home (Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol).
Skylar designed a raft to slide your home onto in the event of a flood. The platform would be held afloat using large aluminium cans.
Enya’s design for a flood proof home ( Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol)
Enya designed a place of safety in the event of a flood. Now she needs to think about the materials she would use to make her floating home.
Skylar’s Flower horn creature (Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol)
Skylar’s troublesome creature has lots of flowers and stripes.It has two tiger legs and two dragon legs. I love the idea of it blowing lots of bubbles too. Wouldn’t that look interesting in Mythico Wood!
Alfie’s Flying dog is a most troublesome creature! (Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol.)
Alfie’s creature has spiky wings and a horn just like a Unicorn’s.
Ava’s mythical creature-Biggy (Bridge Learning Campus, Bristol)
Ava thought of her own mythical, troublesome creature for the story; Mrs Noah’s Pockets. I love the fact that Ava ‘s creature has the body, tail and back legs of a lion, the wings of an eagle, the head of a human and a horn like a unicorn’s.
Very imaginative Ava.

Let the Challenge Begin!
Welcome year 2 Gladiators. The 2019-20 challenge is about to begin. We can’t wait to hear what you think about your new books.
Bridge Learning Campus-Mrs Noah’s Pockets
Today Ava and the rest of the Reading Gladiators were imagining that a giant flood had been predicted.They had to think about what they would save on planet Earth. There were some lovely ideas as you can see.
Today we also started to talk about the effects of Climate change.We know that the changing climate will make our weather more extreme and unpredictable. Sadly,it’s already having a devastating effect on Earth.
