Rockies mummified some apple - much preferred to a human body! Three months later, our apple pieces are still intact - dried, but very much preserved. The Ancient Egyptians got the process just right!
We wrote our own instructions for mummification and made little 'flick' books to explain the steps needed.
We read and enjoyed 'Boot' by Shane Hegarty, our class text during the Spring term 2021. The main character, Boot, encountered many set backs in a quest to find Beth, his owner. His dangerous adventures allowed him to find
*where home is
*what friends look like
*why humans are so leaky and weird.
Our comic strips show different characters from the story facing risky situations. They have to decide whether to take 'the risk', knowing that it could put them in a hazardous place. Their values of friendship and loyalty develop alongside their emotions. Their risk taking pays off, when Boot is reunited with Beth.
By the end of the story Boot is not a 'Robot O Fun', to be owned by Beth anymore, but he has found out who he belongs with - his robot friends, Red, Noke and Poochy.
We have been improving our DT skills by designing, making and evaluating our DT Exhibits. We have use a range of skills including designing backdrops, making exhibits and even making our own security systems. We even know the correct number of vaults needed to power our system effectively!
