Broadcasting the news using Lego

Yesterday, I blogged about using lego to inspire writing, you can read it here.  Today, I wanted to see other ways in which lego can inspire learning.

With Year 4, we looked at recreating the news.  We first looked at some child-friendly news websites (newsround and first news) to look at different news stories to use.

Using the Story Visualiser app, which is included as part of the story starter kit, they designed their own newspaper article. Next time, I may well use comic life as there are more options to use and the text is easier to manipulate.
