My grade 5 girl who has finished reading Picnic at Hanging Rock has been working on a diorama.She created the monolith using air dried modelling clay and I bought some model trees that they use making model railways. she did a great job. ( Refer to the photos)
We have also started making some cardboard knights (They feature in the Bedknob and Broomstick movie. Children used silver cardboard and other bits and pieces to enhance their models.)
We've started reading Dracula as a serial and the kids are really getting into it. It's an interesting book. Bram Stoker wrote it as a series of journal entries and letters written by the main characters and giving the reader their individual perspectives as the horror unfolds. I have a lot off interesting craft, research and creative writing activities to complete while we are reading our classic horror tales.
