A Wrinkle in Time storyboard
Our Year 6 RG group produced a great storyboard for their movie trailer. They picked the key themes of family, friendship, mental health and accepting differences. They added in a little question at the end to really make the potential viewer wonder what might happen and really want to find out.
Quick book review!
Yr6 have really enjoyed this book! They wanted to share some of their thoughts about this book! One child said that they didn’t expect to enjoy the book as much as they did.
In session 3, we talked about the rescue party’s arrival on Camazotz , and the eerie effect it has on the reader. We split into teams and tried our best to convince prospective new residents to settle on our planet.
Finally we discussed statements linked to the text which we found did not really have a right/wrong answer, it depended on how you viewed the question and the links to the wider world.
This led us to a final question which we finished the session with:
Is it alright if you have to do something bad, to allow good to happen?
Reading Gladiators: A Fifth Dimension?
Today, we shared our visualisations of the tesseract and discussed the effects that it might have on the narrative. We looked at mentions of the term in literature and popular culture and thought about how this might have originated from, or linked to, the book.
Discussion about a fifth dimension proved very popular!
Map of ‘A Wrinkle in Time’
Our Yr 6 RG’s map of the planetary settings is great! I particularly like the representations of the 2d planet and Ixchel.
Ixchel Role Play
Our year 6 gladiators had so much fun role playing as Meg and Aunt Beast. They came up with such imaginative ways of representing the aliens and captured perfectly the change in Meg from fearful to comfortable.
Our year 6 Gladiators’ tesseracts are all so similar, I wonder if IT is controlling their minds?!?
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.
