Today Year 4 launched their Olympic Village project.
James and Matt will be teaching across Year 4 regularly this term and they are leading a project which involves the children working in teams to plan and design their own Olympic Village.
Each team will have a different landscape to adapt in order to provide their Olympic village and will be expected to work within the requirements of the budget available as well as the expectations of planners and the sustainability advisers. The teams will need to elect a Chair, a spokesperson, a sustainability adviser and a planner, to deliver their projects.
Working in this way will provide lots of opportunities for maths in real life context, role play, presentation skills and geographical enquiry. This unit will be a model of the creative integrated curriculum the school will be looking to develop throughout the coming academic year.
