Theme: Networker Cyber Bullying Children will be taught through the idea that they have been headhunted to become the ‘networker’ for a small start-up company and it is their job to set up the network and make sure everyone is able to use it properly etc. Attainment Targets DT use research and develop design criteria to inform the design of innovative, functional, appealing products that are fit for purpose, aimed at particular individuals or groups generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion, annotated sketches, cross-sectional and exploded diagrams, prototypes, pattern pieces and computer-aided design Teaching and Learning Focus Children will design a Viking Long Boat, learning about: the use of long boats the shallow hull of the boats and the reason why burials at sea Children will then make a Viking Long Boat. Attainment Targets locate the world’s countries, using maps to focus on Europe (including the location of Russia) and North and South America, concentrating on their environmental regions, key physical and human characteristics, countries, and major cities Geography name and locate counties and cities of the United Kingdom, geographical regions and their identifying human and physical characteristics, key topographical features (including hills, mountains, coasts and rivers), and land-use patterns; and understand how some of these aspects have changed over time. human geography, including: types of settlement and land use, economic activity including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water use maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping to locate countries and describe features studied Teaching and Learning Focus Children will learn about: Where the Viking came from Where in the UK they invaded and settled Which monasteries were invaded and where they were/are located The battle against Alfred the Great. Attainment Targets History Britain’s settlement by the Vikings. Teaching and Learning Focus Identify origins of the Vikings in Europe: Link to Anglo Saxon occupation of Britain; Learn about how and where the Vikings came from; Why did they invade our islands and settle here? (Compare to modern day immigration and the Anglo-Saxon’s and reasons why other nationalities want to live here.) Focus on evidence of settlements through place names we use today and their meanings. What other evidence do we have? Consider historical evidence: Place names Anglo-Saxon Chronicle Burials, especially Sutton Hoo. Attainment Targets listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding Languages explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help* speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures develop accurate pronunciation and intonation so that others understand when they are reading aloud or using familiar words and phrases* Teaching and Learning Focus Recap on vocabulary and phrases already learnt to establish starting point. Ensure secure knowledge and understanding of basics, such as greetings, numbers, colours. Reinforce correct pronunciation. Introduce a few key classroom instructions and responses. Sing songs related to subjects studied. Tout le Monde L2, Modules 3, 4 and 5 ( covering vocabulary for the family, pastimes, countries and transport, houses – rooms, furniture.) Attainment Targets Music listen with attention to detail and recall sounds with increasing aural memory appreciate and understand a wide range of high-quality live and recorded music drawn from different traditions and from great composers and musicians Hockey PE I can perform the skills of hockey with accuracy, confidence and control, focusing on dribbling I am beginning to understand the role of defenders and attackers in hockey. I can perform the skills of hockey with accuracy, confidence and control, focusing on dribbling I can find and use space in a hockey game to help their team I can look for specific things in a game of hockey and explain how well they are being done I know and understand the basic principles of warming up, and understand why it is important for a goodquality performance I can practice the different techniques for passing a ball. I can pass a ball while running. I can receive a ball correctly and safely. I can begin to pass and receive a ball during a game situation. between attacking skills and defending skills in hockey I can respond consistently in the games I play, choosing and using skills which meet the needs of the situation I recognise parts of a performance that could be improved, and identify practices that will help I can suggest ideas for warming up, explaining their choice Teaching and Learning Focus Learn French songs by listening and repetition. BBC Viking sagas Scandinavian composers All learning intentions will be taught through team games, activities and drills that will focus on teaching skills that the children will be able to apply to a game of hockey. Science Attainment Targets Compare how things move on different surfaces Explain that unsupported objects fall towards the Earth because of the force of gravity acting between the Earth and the falling object Identify the effects of air resistance, water resistance and friction, that act between moving surfaces Recognise that some mechanisms, including levers, pulleys and gears, allow a smaller force to have a greater effect. PSHE Consider the reasons for learning and the conditions that promote or inhibit learning and motivation. Teaching and Learning Focus Pupils might work scientifically by: exploring falling paper cones or cup-cake cases, and designing and making a variety of parachutes and carrying out fair tests to determine which designs are the most effective. They might explore resistance in water by making and testing boats of different shapes. They might design and make products that use levers, pulleys, gears and/or springs and explore their effects. Ensure that you have collected lots of ‘junk’ resources. Objects like 2L plastic bottles, scrap paper and card, plastic tubing, etc are extremely useful for many different activities. Find a safe area where parachutes can be dropped. No-one is allowed to stand on tables or chairs, although PE benches in the hall are fine as they have been tested for this purpose. Getting on and falling out – SEAL Theme 2. Children will learn about relationships in different contexts: friendship; groups; leadership.
