Termly Curriculum Overviews
How can you help?
We hope that you can support your child with the learning that they are doing here in school by asking your child to talk about what they have learnt. If your child would like to do further learning this term, here are some suggestions that they may like to explore:
A Day At The Museum: How can we run our own pop-up museum?
- Create a fact file about the life in the Stone Ages.
- Write a diary entry from the point of view of someone living during the Stone Age/ Bronze Age/Iron Age.
- Create a replica of a stone age tool (make sure they are safe).
- Make a replica of Stone Henge.
- Make a replica of a Stone Age shelter using natural materials.
- Have fun making a Stone Age painting using natural materials to make colours (berries, leaves, mud).
- Imagine you have travelled back in time to the Bronze Age. Write a letter back to your family to tell them about your experiences.
- Carry out a study of rocks in your garden - what type of rock are they? How do you know? Test their permeability.
- Make up a quiz with facts about the Stone Age (make sure you have the answers!)
- Create a leaflet for ‘How to survive the Stone Age.’ Imagine you are transported back to the Stone Age and need a guide to help you survive. What would the guide say? What tips would it have? Use ICT, if you wish.
Catastrophe - How can we raise awareness and support those affected by a natural disaster?
- Make an A-Z list of words to do with natural disasters.
- Make a model of the Earth’s layers
- Make a model of a volcano. Use clay, plaster, papier Mache or any other materials.
- Locate areas that volcanoes occur in the world. Look for what patterns erupting volcanoes make on a map of the world.
- Research the temperatures of different volcanic countries e.g. Hawaii, Iceland, Italy. Present your findings in a table.
- Research a volcano and create a fact file e.g. Mount Etna
- Think about what attracts tourists to volcanic areas. Create a tourist advert or leaflet for a real or fictional volcanic area
- Research some famous facts about volcanoes. Create a 10 questions ‘true or false’ quiz. Try it out on your family or friends.
- Research legends associated with volcanoes and earthquakes. Create a storyboard of the legend.
- Research the clothing volcanologists wear at work. Design and label an outfit for a volcanologist.
- Mummify a tomato!
- Create your own cartouche.
- Imagine you were there when Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamen’s tomb. Write a diary or news report about the event.
- Design your own hieroglyphic alphabet using pictures relevant to life in Britain today.
- Create a map showing the key places in Ancient Egypt. How has the country changed?
- Design a death mask for Tutankhamun.
- Create a fact-file on a famous Ancient Egyptian, for example Tutankhamun or Nefertiti.
- The Ancient Egyptians had their own number system. See if you can use it to write out some number sentences.
- Find out more about the construction of the pyramids. Which materials would be best for pyramid building?
