Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Being Augustus...

Since finding out why Augustus lost his smile and how he found it again, we have been looking at the jounrey Augustus takes to find it.  This week we focussed on the moment in the book where Augustus swam the the bottom of the deepest ocean with the tiny, shiny fish. 

We imagined we were Augustus and thought about what we might see, hear, smell, touch and taste whilst in the ocean.  We then used our brainstorms to write a monologue from the perspective of Augustus using adventurous adjectives, sentence openers and conjunctions!

Then we created our own interpretation of the image in the book using oil pastels, tissue paper and glitter.  Here is what we produced!
