After familiarising myself with the new curriculum I have come up with a medium term plan for Year 5. This includes IPC topics, Science, PE and Literacy. Where possible, I have tried to link everything to the IPC. PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!!

Sculpture made easy!

We looked at the work of Giacometti as a starting point for creating our own sport-themed sculptures. The children made sculptures of athletes using pipe cleaners and covered them in foil. Perfect link for the IPC topic 'The Athlete&'.

A bright and simple Phonics/Maths PPT that I have created to use with a Year R pupil during a tutoring session. The session will be delivered via Zoom - see slide notes for explanation. Some slides can be annotated by the pupil for example the matching activities.

Challenge area cards

I have decided to set up a challenge area in my classroom next year to encourage thinking skills and also serve as a time-filler. I have started to compile a set of Maths and Literacy cards which I will change on a weekly basis. I am using Ikea picture frames so that I can use it as a table-top display and children can easily move them to their tables.

Positive behaviour cards

I use these 'caught being good&' cards with my KS2 class. I have a &';post box' in my class for children and adults to put their nominations. At the end of the week I share the names with the class. I also pick out names at random during the week for a reward e.g. 5 minutes on the ipad. Obviously, the more times children are nominated, the more chance they have of being chosen.

Transition ideas - identity head collage

(0)
I used this as a transition activity when I met my new class. The children created a silhouette of their heads and used magazines and catalogues to find pictures of things that were important/special to them. It was a great way to find out more about them and made a great display! The children could also bring in photographs from home!

Encouraging home reading - extracts from books

(0)
As a way of encouraging home reading next year, I have decided to read extracts from popular children's books to the children (once a week). It introduces them to lots of different authors and writing styles and might encourage them to read more widely. See website for more extracts.
