Summer Term Projects – WWII

Posted by eastwoldblog on July 7, 2011

The time is now everyone!

Remember that your Home Learning Projects are due on the 12th July. This is published on the guidesheet as a Monday, but it is infact Tueday. No matter, I will be happy for them to arrive on either day! But no later please because I will have to start reading them straight away!

Don’t forget:

You must choose a minimum of 8 activities to do.  You must do at least 1 from each section, but not more than 3 from one section.

Your aim is to complete at least 20 points (Points in Brackets). Think carefully about which activities you can do to balance sections and points.

You must complete the tasks and put them into a folder or a scrapbook.

This shouldn’t necessarily be a solo project, unless you want it to be of course, get the grown-ups involved too, draw upon the skills of parents, grandparents, older (or younger!) brothers and sisters. These people LOVE a challenge – but they SHOULD NOT be doing it for you!

If you have any queries, questions or concerns – just ask Mr Watson.

(Handed in: Monday 11th or Tuesday 12th July)

I know that people have been very busy and have put loads of thought and attention to detail into this project and I am sure that the standard will again be incredibly high as it has been for the last 2 terms. The bar was set high with your ‘Coasts’ work – so be sure to match it!

Check the marksheet from last time to see where you might improve!

Good luck and I can’t wait!

WWII Art

Posted by eastwoldblog on July 3, 2011

Now that we have worked on our Propaganda Posters, the final part of the Art this term is to select an image of WWII that inspires you in some way.

Anything goes, as long as it interesting to you.

If you have something ‘personal’ or relating to your family then that’s great – but it doesn’t have to be.

Here are some examples:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

When you have an image – bring it in to school – preferably by Wednesday.

We are going to think how we might use it to create a piece of Artwork.

The results should prove interesting as your skills are really developing well!

Question of the Week – Week 4

Posted by eastwoldblog on October 4, 2010

Sorry everyone – I seem to have missed Week 3!

This week’s Question of the Week is “When lightening strikes the sea, why don’t all the fish die?”

A good question when you think about it – but do you know, can you work out or find out the answer?

What do you think?

Do some research and see if you can find the answer (or AN answer!).

Post it on the board in the classroom.

Remember grown ups can play too – and Mum, Dad, Gran, Grandad, Aunties and Uncles…you get the idea!

Post their answers on the board too – it is allowed! (As long as you write their name on the post-it)

Good luck

We’ll have a look on Friday.

Question of the Week – Week 2

Posted by eastwoldblog on September 13, 2010

This week’s Question of the Week is “Why are there no 3-legged animals?”

That is animals that occur naturally with 3 legs – not like the dog in my village that has only 3 legs after a car accident!

What do you think?

Do some research and see if you can find the answer (or AN answer!).

Post it on the board in the classroom.

Remember grown ups can play too – and Mum, Dad, Gran, Grandad, Aunties and Uncles…you get the idea!

Post their answers on the board too – it is allowed! (As long as you write their name on the post-it)

Good luck

We’ll have a look on Friday.

“The Truth Is Out There!” – Reports into UFOs

Posted by eastwoldblog on March 15, 2010

This week in Literacy we will be finding out more about UFOs before preparing a report on the topic.

Scenario:

The Government Department for Schools, Children and Families (DSCF) wants to know if they should include a section on UFOs in the science curriculum –to be taught in schools.

They want a report on UFOs to help them decide.

The report should be as unbiased as possible.

It should seek to answer the following questions:

1. Are there such things as flying objects which are not of earthly origin – i.e. cannot be explained by our science or geography as we know it?

2. How good is the evidence? What are the most compelling bits of evidence?

3. Is there a good case for teaching this topic in schools?

Remember that you have 2 days in class and any homework time that you want to use (UFO Research is your Homework this week) to research information for the topic.

There are links in the “UFO” category on the right (some might not work in school).

REMEMBER: This should be an unbiased report! No matter what you believe, you must look at both sides of the arguement!

Good luck with the research and think about how you can help others, if you find a really useful website that you think other people could use – paste the URL into a comment and I’ll it to the link list.
