We had a letter this morning, telling us about an intruder in the woods and a big battle. The only problem was part of the letter had been ripped and burnt, so we didn’t know who sent it, and even worse we didn’t know who or what the intruder was.
We set off to find clues, looking for things we wouldn’t normally find in the woods.Â We found lots of different things.
Once we had collected everything we set off to try and work out who the things might belong to. We had loads of ideas.
Can you remember some of the things you thought of? We even did some maths to work out if the things were from one creature or more than one.
We decided it wasÂ picture of a dragon. We collaborated and made links to when we made collages in class.
We had worked hard to find out who the intruder was, but we remembered the letter had asked us to try and catch the intruder.
We needed to make a dragon trap – or even a booby trap! I was so impressed with the ideas the group came up with and how they worked problems out
or asked for help, and especially how they collaborated. I loved the idea of using the eggs as bait to catch the dragon in the net, and then the
Once the trap was made, we decided we needed to move somewhere else or we wouldn’t catch the dragon.
We had so much fun, and used so many learning muscles this morning.
Here are the ones I think you used, have I missed any out?
Absorption, managing distractions, noticing, persevering, making links, Imagining, planning, collaboration.
I haven’t forgotten that you said I could come down and look at some of your work in class – although I’m a little worried now you have told
me you have booby traps in there!
