Earlier this term Room 11 enjoyed the wonderful performance of the ‘Oddysea’ by the Sensorium team. Each of our students interacted with the telling of this story as the actors brought the tale to life. After being immersed in this seaside and underwater experience, Room 9 began exploring this ocean theme for themselves. We’ve enjoyed the story of The Troll by Julia Donaldson which is a fun twist on The Three Billy Goats Gruff with the troll crossing paths with pirates! So we began making pirate maps, a troll and sea creatures. Decorating the walls of Room 11 are the faces of our students in diving suits surrounded by bubbles showing how they have become underwater explorers. How cool that one experience can trigger so many other learning opportunities!
