Product Creation in 5B
Term 3 has been very creative for the Year 5’s. Our major inquiry was: How we organise ourselves - advertising influences, what we think and the choices we make. This provided a platform for the students to produce an advertisement that would add value for consumers.
The planning was extensive. The students brainstormed ideas for their product, collaborated with each other and eventually decided on a product. Then they wrote storyboards to help with the filming and raided their homes for suitable props and clothing. The finale was creating an advertisement.
The products in 5B which we think added value for consumers were: ‘Zippo’- a pillow attached to a sleeping bag, so that when families go on holiday it reduces the amount of luggage, ‘Full of Taste’ – bubble gum that doesn’t run out of flavour, ‘R.P.R’ – a rubber, pencil and ruler – for students who lose their equipment and ‘Home Gnome’ – a gnome that has a camera in one eye to spot burglars and in the other eye a burglar alarm.
We would like to thank Ian Robinson, our film and Green Room expert, for his never ending time and support.
