Design and Technology Week
With our last attempt trying to build an Olympic 3D model structure ending on a bit of a wobble, we decided to have another go using different resources. This time we used wooden sticks and plasticine . As you can see from the photographs, again failed to hold up to combined weight. We think we may try again will a smaller length of stick!
After painting posts and decorating our Den, it was time for Year 5 to put it to good use. World Book Day arrived and we used this day to compose our own story in the Den. Under the canopy of bright colours, we set out to write a whole class story based on some information given about objects to be included which were found in the mystery chest (a clock, a red cloak, a black top hat, a necklace and a torch). Our story is next, please read…
The Mysterious Chest
One cold winter night, the tall ticking grandfather clock struck midnight. Thunder and lightning raged in the sky. Little Timmy shivered in fear in his old worn out bed.
Goosebumps spelling the words FEAR in braille erupted upon his arm. Footsteps echoed in the hall outside his bedroom door, closer and closed they came.
CRASH the door slammed open, his favourite mirror smashed unto the floor into a million pieces. A red bloody cloak reflected a million times in the mirrored moonlight. Petrified , his heart raced.
Cautiously, he tip toed from his bed, his breath vapourised in the freezing air. Shaking with fear , he gripped his red leather torch with trembling fingers. Switching the torch on he slowly crept out of bed. Faintly, the torch beamed as he scanned the room. He could hear a croaking laughter echoing in the shadows.
“Your times up!” the black shape said.
On the mirror were the starched words, YOU’RE NEXT
He felt a cold finger touch his shoulder, from the corner of his eye he watch, terrified as a black top hat floated towards him. The large shadow from the brim, covered the face and figure. Timmy saw in the shadows a kite shaped necklace glistening like a jewelled beacon caught in the torchlight.
Nervously , he snatched the necklace, the jewel hypnotising him. At the side was a catch – he was tempted to open it. From the shadow red eyes warned him. He opened the catch as quick as a flash.
Suddenly, a huge sucking noise filled the room. Sucked into the kite shaped necklace the shadow went. Timmy closed the catch with a sharp snap. The shadow disappeared. Timmy flung the necklace into an old chest under the bed. The chest was never opened again.
