7Explorer Immersion Week!

Phew!  It’s been a busy week so far for 7Explorer and we’ve only been back at school for three days!

The new year has seen the launch of our new expedition, beginning with Immersion Week which is when we are given lots of clues about what our new expedition and guiding question might be about.  We have to try and piece the clues together, looking out for any red herrings!

We started by sharing the following quotation:

‘I wanted you to see what real courage is.  It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.’

We then watched the opening credits to the film ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’.Image result for to kill a mockingbird opening credits

What could the connection be?

Yesterday, we travelled to Liverpool where we visited the International Slavery Museum.  We are now busy trying to work out how what we saw and heard could link with our new expedition.Image result for international slavery museum liverpool

Today, we took part in a Gallery Walk, contemplating different images, some happy, some quite harrowing, and thought about how these could also be linked.  A couple of us think we spotted some red herrings!

So far, words such as unique, slavery, division, separation, punishment, racism and rights have been shared.

The ‘big reveal’ is on Friday – what do you think our new expedition will be about?
