FINDERS, KEEPERS!

By 2

Wow! For those of you who don’t already know the Y5 children received a delivery last week! During the holidays Max (Mr T’s puppy) dug up some old swords and they were sent off to the Royal Armouries to be investigated.

This week we recevied a parcel and letter from Leeds Royal Armouries and it turns out that the swords Max found are actually daggers! The researchers at the Armouries said that they weren’t willing to send the original relics to us because they needed to study them further, but instead they sent a pair of replica daggers which they created using 3D projection mapping! How cool is that?!

After Mr T had read the letter to us and showed us how to hold the daggers carefully we were given the opportunity to take a further look for ourselves! The daggers were surprisingly light considering how big they are.

What do you think, would any of us make good Norman soldiers?

Young Entrepreneurs become advertising specialists!

This week Class 10 were lucky enough to have been visited by a professional print artist. We worked with Sam for a full morning, she showed us some of her work and she showed us how to produce t-shirt prints. During the workshop we worked with our business partners to print our company logos onto some t-shirts (kindly donated by ASOS). First, Sam showed us how to create a template and the different layers of our logo using printing fabric and cardboard, we then used this template to guide our print, mixed the correct inks and practiced printing onto some paper (to make sure we had mastered the careful technique approach!) Then, it was time to give it a go! We were given our t-shirts and we re-used our templates to print out company logos onto them – take a look at the results and comment about how you think we did!

We’d like to give a massive thanks to Jason & Sam for coming in and working with us! We’ll be wearing our t-shirts during our advertisement phase of our gaming topic! 🙂
