We have been very excited about the lead up to the live transmission from the RSC this week of Romeo and Juliet. In order to prepare we acted out various scenes and created freeze frames in the playground. This really helped with our understanding.

Year 5 went MAD!
At the MAD museum in Stratford that is!  After having to postpone their trip due to the snow earlier in the year, the children were really looking forward to a morning exploring the interactive exhibits of the Mechanical Art and Design (MAD) Museum.  From the moment the children stepped into the museum, they were instantly captivated by the whirring of cogs and cams and the intricate movements of these amazing inventions.  The marble run room proved to be very popular and the class demonstrated excellent collaborative working skills to make the most extreme marble runs imaginable!  There were automata that could draw, like the one in the class novel Hugo, as well as fascinating films about how some of these creations were made or operated.
Here’s one we made earlier!

What the children thought…
“It was unique and really fun!” – Lacey
“The marble run room was full of ideas” – Jake
“I likes reading all the information about the exhibits – it was really interesting” – Margaux
“Creative” – Bayley
“Unexpected and exciting” – Grace
“It was MAD!” –Matt
“The mini cinema had a really interesting film in it” – Kallum
“The whole place made me want to explore!” – Wilbur
“It was detailed and eye-catching” – Emma
“MAD is exactly what it was!” – Lilah
