Year 5 have had a very exciting and mysterious start to their new topic which is called The Invention of Dreams.
We received some historical artefacts and had to work as detectives to make links between the clues.
This lead us to the conclusion that all of the items were linked to early films and cinema. Since then we have been putting together other clues in our Literacy sessions by trying to order text and images from the start of a book.
We used reciprocity to work in small teams and searched the text and images for clues and key words. We think we have managed to put together the first few chapters of a book.
Whilst ordering the pages we used IPads and an App called “Explain Everything” to sort the pages, take photographs, write short explanations and also record our conversations using microphones.
We are very intrigued to find out more and to discover why the topic is called The Invention of Dreams.
