I have a dream...By Martin Luther King


Listen to the famous speech made by Martin Luther King in 1963. 

  • How does the speech make you feel? 
  • What does it make you think about? 
  • What is the overall theme of the speech? 

Create a piece of art inspired by Martin Luther King's speech. Try to link it to the theme you have identified. It could be a collage with images of equality or a painting of a dream in which Mr King's wishes came true. Maybe you could create a model of what you feel the theme is or an image that represents a dream. You may even be inspired to write a poem. 

This is a very open task and I am very excited to see how you will interpret it.

 Food fun! 


Linked to the areas of interest you have identified in our EPIC planning, I thought you  might enjoy creating your own special recipe! Some of you wondered how things like Pot Noodles were created, so have some fun creating a dish of your own! 

What can you invent in your own kitchen? 

Think about your main aim for the dish: will it be healthy? vegan? for people with a particular allergy? family dinner? for a party? or just experimenting fun!! 

Will you create a sweet treat or a savoury snack? 

I would love to see your creations!

Rube Goldberg is famous for his cartoons of machines, usually chain reaction-type machine or contraption intentionally designed to perform a simple task in an indirect and overly complicated way.

Have a look at some of Rube Goldberg's famous inventions below - can you create your own cartoon invention to help out with an everyday task? 

Can you create your own Rube Goldberg invention out of materials you have in your own home? 

I am so excited to see some of your illustrations or working models!!
