The material in this section comprises a growing bank of teachers' planning examples and pupils' learning activities. Working documents to collect and keep together in your subject leaders file. Key information on the best resource providers, key websites, ICT published tools, schemes, storybooks and much more.
15 If strong enough links can be created between subjects, pupils knowledge and skills can be used across the whole curriculum Building concepts Practising skills Assisting memory Opportunities for application Opportunities for recognition and development of key aspects of learning Excellence and enjoyment Working across the curriculum Five good reasons
16 What the box does for you 1 It – is user friendly is reinforced to national curriculum statements for ease of planning is written by professionals for professionals – all the research has been done for you includes many extension activities across the curriculum brings the curriculum to life by embedding learning in real experiences ensures every child experiences success encourages independent learning and develops learning skills across the curriculum units can each be a broad and balanced curriculum meal starts from where you are now and helps you to reach out to our future world responds to the current initiatives – the Frameworks et al is fully reinforced with high quality materials
17 What the box does for you 2 ensures every child experiences success encourages independent learning and develops learning skills across the curriculum units can each be a broad and balanced curriculum meal starts from where you are now and helps you to reach out to our future world responds to the current initiatives – the Frameworks and future curriculum changes is fully reinforced with high quality materials
19 What the Box does for your children 1 It enables them to - utilise all their senses reach out from a firm base by beginning from the familiar look at their surroundings with new eyes have rich stimulating experiences become more observant
20 What the Box does for your children 2 It enables them to - begin to think outside the box refine their questioning skills engage in the learning process develop their creativity enjoy working across the curriculum areas …have fun and have ownership
22 Themes and Questions There are five themes : People Place Senses Structures and materials Culture With your neighbour see how many questions you can think of appropriate for each theme
23 Ways to use the Primary Project Box Dip in – use a single activity that links with current plans Subject strand – follow progression through one subject through all five units and look for easy links to other subjects where appropriate Begin with theme or questions and use activities in each unit which support these…….. Single unit Whole box
25 The lesson format 1 Each lesson description follows the same format over four pages Learning intentions: Page 1 Previous experience Before you start Getting ready A suggested timing Setting up the learning environment Vocabulary National Curriculum KS1 Subject PoS references PSHE Guidlines
26 Lesson Format 2 The Lesson P2 & 3, 4 Introduction – questions and style of starters Main activity – organisation and development with main outcomes Other activities Finishing off- involving other groups, classes, Differentiation – challenges and support Responses and assessment – expectations at three levels Involvement of Parents/carers Extension activities across the curriculum Resources- stories, information sources including web sites
27 Another way to use the themes and activities Each question box has the relevant subjects to provide the information and skills to answer the question e.g. What games do we play ? What games did children play? What games do other children play? EN, Hi, PE, PL
28 Our World Inside Outside Wider Changing Future English Develop questions and vocabulary Writing : description lists, vocabulary, organise and explain create story,poems, titles Speaking – tell, discuss, express views, create characters and role play ;question;persuade, describe, present Listening – story, tape recorder, video, presentation ICT Process collected data, annotate, research and create Geography Ask geographical questions;use geographical vocabulary Express views; use fieldwork skills; make maps Use observations to make study of local and other areas;communiucate in different ways including ICT Begin to understand values and attitudes Understand about other peoples lives Recognise how things have changed and are changing and could be improved and sustained History Ask historical questions and use historical vocabulary; express views Use evidence; consider changes and continuities in material things Begin to understand values and attitudes Understand about peoples lives; Develop empathy in comparison Develop enquiry through interrogation and interpretation and communicate in different ways including ICT Science Describe and sort using criteria Use scientific questions and vocabulary Recognise different materials Recognise different are suitable for different uses and purposes Compare different materials and test with water, heat and wind Collaborate with models in D&T Recognise differences in living things and environments Recognise different needs and universal needs e.g. water. D&T Design, model, test and evaluate Talk, plan, communicate Use a variety of methods including drawing, making models Use a variety of materials along with and besides those used by Science Test and evaluate with concern for changing needs, uses, and future possibilities. Primary Languages Look at languages spoken at home, in school, in the neighbourhood, other places Vocabury – develop questions and subject vocabulary in another language Use context and clues to interpret meaning Customs – consider an equivalent culture and notice clothes, food, customs, buildings activities and work with authentic materials Consider continuity and change in the above if possible through other peoples experience Consider future needs RE Link with PL. Hist and Geog, to consider festivals and religious customs Link with maths, Science and D&T to consider shapes and ideas connected to different religions. Mathematics Use mathematical vocabulary to describe position and movement. Work with whole, half and quarter turns Name and describe common 2D and 3D shapes;Solve problems relating to shape. Use measures and ask and answer questions relating to real-life shapes,. Collect, sort, classify and organise data in order to solve problems. Use a turtle to support measures, maps and models in other subject areas. Music & Drama and PE : role play and re-enactment both now, in the past and for the future Use stories, poems, songs, from now, the past and other places. Use these to explore how sounds are made in different ways and can be used for different purposes. Art : complement mapping skills ( grids for plans and body maps) Explore and create different materials to use with modelling and map making Use different processes including digital, to illustrate elements of work in other subjects.
