Enjoying the text
The team are thoroughly enjoying the text and are eager to see what happens next
The children enjoyed exploring the two points of view: Why Mila should have taken Pipa and Why Mila should have left Pipa at home. This caused much debate and children could not unanimously agree on the best outcome

IVJS A Wrinkle in Time Storyboard
We have thoroughly enjoyed working as a team to complete our first mini-challenge. We particularly loved reading the book and brainstorming all our ideas.
The children have been introduced to the second text in their Gladiator journey and can’t wait to see what happens.
Brainstorming A Wrinkle in Time
IVJS Reading Gladiators were amazed to discover that A Wrinkle in Time was written over 50 years ago – what a wonderful imagination Madeliene L’Engle had!
The team looked at the statement cards which identify some of the issues regarding what it means to be human. This caused huge debate amongst the group deciding which they agree with and which they don’t.
The team had their second session today and it allowed them to draw their own interpretation of ‘The Tesseract’. The one above is represented by layers of colour as you travel through time.

The team were very excited today after receiving a gift!
A Wrinkle In Time
The Year 6 children have started their ‘Reading Gladiator’ journey and are eager to learn more about the tesseract. They first session enabled them to start a character profile on some of the individuals we have been introduced to in the first chapter.
Let the Challenge Begin!
Welcome year 6 Gladiators. The 2019-20 challenge is about to begin. We can’t wait to hear what you think about your new books.
