A project is a hands on practical challenge which involves the application of skills from different subjects – it should also be FUN!
The Projects should involve a variety of skills from a variety of subjects. The project should have a timescale and pupils will have to organise themselves to get the job done well and in on time!
Here is a video of a project in action!
Finished leaflets will go live here in Nov 17!
Yr 4 have been undertaking a project on Hill Forts built from the Bronze Age to the Iron Age. They have linked the following areas;
– the names and properties of different quadrilaterals
– how to draw those quadrilaterals
– how to calculate the perimeter of a rectangle
– measure and draw lines accurately
– how to create an iMovie with attached audio and images
– use historical evidence to find out about a period of time
Here is a video of a project.
Here are a selection of some Projects the children did last year.
Charity Week – May 2017 – Yr 6
We invited the parents and friends from Lever House Primary School to come and support our charities. Thank you for buying our cakes and throwing wet sponges at our children!
Yr 6 – C and the CF Project:
Your challenge is to make a factory incorporating two electrical inventions; one using a motor and one using a light bulb. You will work in three’s and your project must include:
six different quadrilateral windows
one window with an area of 24cm
another window with a perimeter of 30cm
a piece of explanatory writing about how your factory works; you can present this writing in any format i.e. hand-written or typed.
You will need to constantly evaluate your factory and writing; note down how and why you have changed from your initial plan.
Democracy Week – June 2017 – Yr 5
There’s a general election coming up on 8 June, where adults will vote to decide who will run the UK.
Although children aren’t able to vote, the choices made at the election will have a big impact on the lives of all children across the country.
But what would you do if you were prime minister?
Here is a video from one of the Lever House Candidates for Prime Minister.
Year 4 – Garden Project – June 2107
A challenge as part of their topic work on plants and it involved using their Science, Maths and D&T skills:
You are going to design and make a model garden. Your garden will need to be drawn to scale and must contain separate growing areas for 5 different vegetables. In addition to this, you will need a further 2 areas to grow flowering plants to encourage bees and other insects into the local area. Finally, you will need an attractive centre feature for your garden, such as a fountain or a statue of a famous person or creature and have paths for people to safely move around your garden area.
Your total area will be a rectangular shape that is 18m x 25m. You will need to use a scale of 1cm = 1m for your plan (to be done in pencil on A4 paper). Each growing area must have a perimeter of between 12m and 20m and cannot be any smaller or larger than this.
Once your plan has been approved, you will then make a model of your garden which will have a scale of 1cm = 50cm to be completed on A3 paper and using wood and other construction materials.
The children worked brilliantly in their teams and created some beautiful gardens. Well done Year 4!
