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

Mighty gods or lazy gods?

Are the gods really as mighty as they think they are?

In preparation for writing a balanced argument based around the choices made by some of the characters in this term's English novel, we stepped into the story and the role of some characters.

Our balanced argument will be considering whether Little Ben, Sue and Harry were correct to create some new creatures (although they may not be new to us and our world). Should they have left it to the gods or should they have bypassed them because they were ignoring their requests and ideas?

We role played the god characters and what they would be thinking whilst lounging lazily around up in the heavens and looking down on the world which they have created between them all.

We began thinking about the creations that we see every day within the world around us. We wrote proclamations from the perspective of the gods about the things which we find particularly impressive.

Here are some of the things which we think the gods should be proud of:

  • Famous people and how well they entertain us (Jack).
  • Whales (Adebayo).
  • Puppies and that they are cuter than the fish (Chloe).
  • Pandas and how fast they can climb (Olivia).
  • Monkeys and how hyper they can be (Era).
  • Turtles and their breathtaking swimming (Ausaja).
