How does Robot feel?

In English we are reading 'The Robot and the Bluebird' by David Lucas.  We have been focusing on Robot's feelings since he discovered that he has a broken heart and how his feelings change throughout the book.  The other robots try to fix him but it's no good and so he is put on the scrapheap with all of the other broken robots.  He is left there all year and endures every season.  He is mainly sad up until this point. 

This week, we have been expanding our vocabulary knowledge by thinking of alternative adjectives for 'sad.'  This is what we came up with!

Merlins took on the challenge!

We also experienced how Robot felt being left on the scrapheap throughout the seasons.  The heater in our classrooms was turned up to experience summer and we went onto the playground to experience winter.  We didn't stay out for long as it was very cold - poor Robot!  In both seasons we were quiet so we could experience how alone Robot is. Whilst we were in the different seasons, we thought of more adjectives to describe how Robot might have felt or to describe the environment.
