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!

Mr W.

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!

In Depth World War II Timeline

Posted by eastwoldblog on May 11, 2011

WWII Timeline

I thought that some of you might find this useful.

It is a detailed timeline of the events of World War II.

Adapted from: http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/Homework/war/timeline.htm

It could be useful for something in your projects, or just for reference.

Class 4 – Home Learning Project – Summer 2011

Posted by eastwoldblog on April 27, 2011

I can honestly say that I was astounded by the standard of  last terms ‘Home Learning Project’.

It was such a pleasure to read the work that had gone into the ‘Coasts’ project!

Thanks to all the adults that helped and supported the children through their work – it was truly excellent!

They should be on display very soon in school.

——————————————————————

OK everyone, I introduced this to you in class today.

World War II – Project

(Download a copy above)

This time you are going to create your own folder/file/scrapbook of tasks related to this terms topic – ‘World War II’.

The tasks fit into different categories like KNOWLEDGE, COMPREHENSION, APPLICATION, ANALYSIS, EVALUATION and SYNTHESIS. Each of these requires you to use different skills.

You get to choose what to do and how much because each activity has a ‘Points Value’.

You need to score AT LEAST 20 pts in AT LEAST 8 activities (You can score more and complete more tasks!)

The final presentation can be very personal and as long as it fulfills the instructions it will be fine!

 ————————————————————————-

Here are the guidelines to follow so you get this project in on time:

You must choose a minimum of 8 activities to do.   You must not do 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 should 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!

As always, if you have any queries, questions or concerns – just ask Mr Watson.

It is to be handed in: Monday 12th July 2011 (You have just over 10 weeks!)

 ————————————————————————-

Remember that if you ‘go the extra step’ and extend any of the challenges then BONUS POINTS will be available!

Copy and Paste from any source of information like a book, leaflet or the Internet and passing it off as your own WILL result in PENALTY POINTS!

Can you be the one to work hard and score the most points?

Good luck and I hope that you enjoy the challenge!

Mr W.
