Key Stage Two

At Hollinswood Primary we plan a creative curriculum that links foundation subjects in a theme.  Each subject is planned with careful consideration of the Key Skills for that subject, this means that lessons are not differentiated necessarily by age but by the skills that are appropriate for each child. For individual pupils, consideration is given to a flexible timetable to suit needs. This could be on a one to one basis, a small group within class, or close to the class. It could also be working in a quiet area away from distractions. We work hard to include all children and develop their independence within class.

 

Years 3 and 4

This term year 3 and 4 will be finishing off their work about the Egyptians due to their postponed trip to Birmingham Museum. They will be designing and making their own death mask using clay.

 

Our theme during the summer term will be the rainforest. We will be learning about plants, living things and animals including humans through forest school. Linking to these themes, in our D&T, we will be making healthy muffins. We will be using our forest schools to compare a rainforest to our own wooded area. We will be exploring art through Andy Goldsworthy using natural materials.

 

Year 3 and 4 children are really excited about our overnight stay in Coalport.

Years 5 and 6

 This half term, Year 5 and 6 will be transported back in time to explore leisure and entertainment in Britain throughout the 20th Century, in their exciting new theme "What did your Great Granny do for fun?"

 

They will explore fashion and music through the ages, and develop an understanding of how leisure time was spent. Parents, grandparents and the wider family network will be grilled by a survey (created by their children) to find out how they spent their leisure time when they were younger. The children will be researching and designing their own fashion accessory from their chosen era, and will partake in a once in a lifetime catwalk show.  They will also create their own interactive box for a gameshow based on their knowledge of the topic.
