This HUGE BUNDLE of lessons, resources, homework and schemes of work targeted at cross curricular links between Science, English and ICT for KS3 pupil. The theme is “Your Favourite Movie” and the pupils are to build a portfolio of graded activities to create their project.
It was designed to fit the timetable for my school where the year 7 and 8’s had a creative curriculum day once a week with three teachers assigned; one Science, English and ICT. The pupils would then take a lead on how they would manage their time over a term. They would select from a range of activities each week, themed to each subject, and would allocate themselves for the day. All these activities would then build up to their “Creative Diploma” for that term. It worked by building a project from their 6 best activities from a selection of 9. This obviously may not fit your timetable model but could easily be adapted to be run over a much longer period of time as cross curricular after school clubs of summer holiday projects etc.
Each activity is built up from many smaller tasks leading to a grade for that piece of work using level ladders. All tasks are written and presentable straight to the pupils with clear guidance, instructions, tasks, questions, homework and level ladders. The level ladders are based around now, next, further and advanced so not grade or level based but easily editable to fit your school model.
Activities range from building circuits, podcasts, web design, writing scripts, costume design, cameras and lenses, the behaviour of light and filters and theme songs. Each individual activity linked back to their “Favourite Movie” concept building a solid link between these three subjects.
A fun and practical way to cover a huge variety of subjects and topics from within these three specific curriculum.
