We are so proud of our computing skills! We have been learning how to create a stop-animation using a whiteboard and pen and the app called Stickbot. These are our first attempts - how fantastic are they!
After reading 'The Viewer' by Gary Crew, we studied the images of the viewer slides. They showed times in history and negative aspects of the world both past, present and future. We then discussed the negative aspects of the world in which we live today... we designed our own slides to show the negatives and how as humans we could make a change for the better - to make the world a better place. We are really pleased with the outcome.

As part of our work on 'The Viewer' by Gary Crew and Shaun Tan, we performed a drama activity called a 'Conscience Alley' to help our main character, Tristan, to decide whether he should continue to look at the viewer.
