Time Travelling Ted
Ben was given 50p to spend at the next car boot sale. He needed to keep his eyes peeled for posters for the next sale. We decided to have our own car boot sale and sell the toys we don't play with anymore. We wrote adverts for our amazing sale.
Ben is wandering through a car boot sale, looking for the perfect toy. His mum has given him 50p but he can’t seem to afford anything. He hasn’t seen anything that has caught his eye apart from a lonely looking teddy bear. A slightly worn and battered bear sat on the back of the table longing for someone to love him. Ben knows that he could be the person to love this lost bear back to life. Sold! Sam is now the proud owner of Ted.
When Ben picked up Ted he was all squashed. We decided to find out how we could change the shape of a solid object by twisting, stretching, bending and squashing them. We then reported back to Ben how he could change the shape of Ted.
Ben was worried that the toys back in his bedroom was be mean to Ted as he was old and looked different. We write a description of Ted to let the other toys know what he looked like.
We then thought about the different toys at the car boot sale and if they were toys form the past or present. We took pictures on our way round the sale and then discussed if they were old or new based on what they looked like, what they were made from and how they worked.
On the way back to Ben's house Ted began to think about his old owner, Anna. He started to day dream about what his new owner would be like. We wrote in Ted's diary.
We then looked in Ted's diary to see what he had written himself. We looked through it and helped him to edit his punctuation.
When they arrived back home, Ted was taken to Sam’s bedroom. The other toys look over at Ted, wondering who he was and where he had come from. They asked Ted lot of questions but Ted didn't know. The other toys noticed that Ted looked sad. They all knew where they had originated from but he didn't. Suddenly Barbie remembered an app she had seen on her iPad. A time travelling app which allows users to travel back in time! This would allow Ted to go back in time to see where he has come from!
We looked at designing the logo for the time travelling app. we looked at the work of Salvador Dali and how he created clocks that looked like they were melting. We used this for inspiration.
Ted and Barbie arrive in a Nintendo Wii, in the middle of a Mario Kart game in 2006. They land in the middle of the race track and nearly get run over by Bowser! They decided to write a description of where they were so that robot back home could tell them where they were.
Ted and Barbie realise that this is definitely not the right place for where Ted has come from as he doesn’t need a controller! Robot tells them to ask Yoshi how to get out of the game. We wrote him a letter asking him questions. He said that in order to escape the game they must win the game!
We needed to design super fast cars that would win this race!
We needed our cars to be fast on all surfaces. We tested to see what the cars would do when driving along different surfaces. We then thought about how we could make our car faster on these.
To get out of the game Yoshi told us lots of tricks that we could do. We all ran the race and we won! We wrote a recount to tell the toys at home how we managed it.
We thought about what we could make our cars from and then designed what we wanted it to look like.
We created our own cars to race in and then tested them on the track.
