Yesterday Year 5 opened the envelope containing their big challenge for the year.
“Build a theatre and make a play to perform in it.”
We agreed this was an ambitious project but felt clever enough to take it on. This is ‘Higher Order Thinking’. There is no one correct answer for us to find. We spent some time yesterday thinking about the steps we would need to take in order to accomplish this challenge.
Together we agreed that we would probably need an architect to help us design our theatre. We also agreed that our theatre would need to slot together so we could get it from our classrooms into the hall and back again.
On Friday we go to see The BFG at The REP, while we are there we will look at everything that a theatre needs to work well and feed these into the brief for the architect.
We will also need to find an architect!
