‘Fabulous Robots’ : English Club

‘Fabots’ is a word short for ‘fabulous robots’, made up by my oldest son and his friend. It was their wish, therefore, to be able to make ‘fabots’ in english club…
“What do we need?” I asked. Some cylindrical pieces of wood about 5cm in width, small nails, big nails and maybe some wood glue, came the reply – and then I got a little detailed plan…..

…and so, last week, we started to make ‘fabots’. 😉

The kids then told me, while I scribed, the characters of their ‘fabots’, and the jobs the ‘fabots’ were employed to do…

The kids decided they wanted to make their own board games for these ‘fabots’, so this week we continued with that.
There was an incredible amount of discussion involved – entirely in english – pretty fantastic considering they barely spoke less than a year ago. And using words such as ‘strategies’ and ‘combat’ too!
