Pop-up Paddington

Pop-up Paddington

Pupils design and make their own Paddington pop-up book. Pop-up Paddington is inspired by the joy of Paddington's second film adventure, Paddington 2 (in cinemas November 10). Activities support and encourage pupils to develop communication, active citizenship, problem solving and creative skills. Pop-up Paddington culminates in the creation and evaluation of a pop-up book featuring Paddington carrying out ‘odd jobs' around the community. Pop-up Paddington is designed for learners in Key Stage 2/Second level, with guidance to simplify or extend activities to suit the variety of skills and abilities demonstrated by pupils aged 7-11. It has been created in partnership with STUDIOCANAL. You can round off your Paddington-inspired work by giving each pupil a competition entry form for their chance to win official Paddington goodies for their whole class, plus a special Paddington 2 prize for the winning entrant!

Design & Make a Board Game

Design & Make a Board Game

I've done this Design Technology project a few times now and it's always a winner - I've never known a class that wasn't absorbed by this so I'm really happy to be offering it to you. Students work in pairs (they can work individually if they wish). I've included the power point which details each step so the class can look at it together at the start of each session. I've also included a checklist so students can make sure they haven't forgotten anything along with a basic, student-friendly assessment sheet. I hope you have fun with it!
