    Maudlin Map Mini-Challenge

    Hi Just Imagine,
    Edenthorpe Hall Year 4 Reading Gladiators have loved reading Treasure of the Golden Skull by Chris Priestley and could not wait to enter the first mini-challenge! They have re-created the map and added lots of details too with important questions but no answers! Our Gladiators have been learning pirate talk, following maps and searching for pieces of eight - they cannot wait to start reading the next book over the holidays. Thank you for a really enjoyable book to start the reading programme again.

    We are delighted that you have enjoyed the first book of the Reading Gladiators year. We love the use of collage and different lettering used to present your map. Great questions! Well done Gladiators!

    3D Map of Maudlin Towers- Open if you dare!

    Year 4 children were really excited to explore the map and all the events that centred around the towers. They decided that to really demonstrate their ideas they wanted to create a 3D map where the reader can visualise the towers and surrounding areas. The children planned and sketched their map ideas, then created a model using newspaper and Mod Rock to create a solid terrain. The children explored and built 3D pieces that would help the readers understanding of events. Finally the children discussed and planned the annotation that would accompany the map, this included rhetorical questions. Would you like your teacher to be a pirate? What happened to Sponge and Mildew? Find out - If you dare!!

    Goodness what a fantastic effort from thorough planning through to extending the task to a 3D map. Brilliant questions too! I wonder how many children would like their teacher to be a pirate?!

    We love the monochrome colour palette in keeping with the pen and ink illustrations in the book.

    Your notebooks look very inviting and I love the fact that they colour match the first book jacket! We look forward to seeing some notes and ideas from your gladiators very soon.

    Hello St Paul's. We read your blog as part of our first Gladiator session and want to let you know we are so envious of your fabulous notebooks! 8 eager readers from Academy 360 are raring to go. We were particularly captivated by the map and spent ages exploring it. We're looking forward to sharing ideas, activities and thoughts with other Year 4 pupils across the country and the world...
