Visual Literacy with a twist...
On Monday we wrote from first hand experiences imagining that we were Sophie on the rooftops of Paris.
In the hall we had the bars, ropes, benches and high stools set up. We all had to take off our shoes and socks or tights, if you were wearing them. All of this was so we were able to write about walking on rooftops. On the ropes I climbed and my hands were very sore; I wrote sore on the paper that said danger. In my book I wrote that when I jumped from roof to roof I landed on my hands making them ache and hurt. We were allowed to write in the hall on one of the objects so at the same time we wrote we could feel what we were writing. I really liked the lesson because I was able to feel what I was writing: this gave me more ideas. Whilst I watched people walk on the benches I saw how they wobbled so I closed my eyes and dreamed I was on a rooftop wobbling just like everyone else was. - Joella
How did you feel whilst exploring/writing from a height?
