Look what I can do…
Right. Coming back to this one now. This was a list (as you can see) of “I cans…” suggested by the children (p4-7 class) last week after a lesson where they were designing and making lettering to print with to make some WWII Propaganda posters a la Kitchener…
The class were allowed to use wood and associated tools and/or polystyrene blocks to create lettering. This will then be used to make posters with designs and slogans of their choosing. Weirdly the idea of not needing to make all of the letters was a source of some confusion; e.g. Your Country Needs You only requires one “e” to be manufactured…
The “planned” e’s and o’s weren’t - I need hardly add - quite so comprehensive…
I explore materials, tools and software to discover what they can do and how I can use them to help solve problems and construct 3D objects which may have moving parts.
During practical activities and design challenges, I can estimate and measure using appropriate instruments and units.

I have the opportunity to choose and explore an extended range of media and technologies to create images and objects, comparing and combining them for specific tasks.
I consider the impact that layout and presentation will have and can combine lettering, graphics and other features to engage my reader.
I can convey information, describe events or processes, share my opinions or persuade my reader in different ways.
