This is a great creative writing English project, which is ideal for any time of the year, with its focus on creative writing and narrative work
I have used this in Grades 4 and 5, but it can also be easily adapted to younger age groups.
The basic aim of the project is for the children to design a strange and unique school, which could be a magic school, monster school, superhero school, etc. There are no limits to how the children approach this and the project leaves plenty of room for creative writing and art work. The project also works well alongside book work linked to schools, such as Harry Potter, Demon Headmaster or Diary of a Wimpy Kid - great for a movie 'treat' as well!
There are 6 sessions included in the planning and PowerPoint, which can be used over anything from 3 to 10 days - it just depends on how much time you have and how much detail the children want to include!
All teaching resources, student support sheets, planning and differentiation are included, making this a simple project to manage during busy times. In addition, each activity is straightforward to introduce, allowing the children to then work independently on various engaging tasks.
Included in this resource are:
*21 slide teaching PowerPoint, containing all task instructions, examples of work to discuss and challenge/extension activities.
*9 resource sheets to support the independent tasks.
*Full planning grid, including differentiation.
