Key Stage 2

SUMMER TERM PROJECT - BEAST CREATOR

A bug, a creepy-crawly, a beast! He’ll tickle your skin then go in for the sting! Arachnids, insects, molluscs and myriapods, hiding in nooks and beneath darkened rocks. Come search for these minibeasts, and let’s sort them out! How many legs? How many wings? Who does it eat and who eats it? Can you classify it? Can you draw it or make it? Build a bug hotel or a wonderful wormery – then watch them wriggle and burrow, mixing earth as they go! Discover where in the world you’ll find the deadliest beasts. Perhaps the Vespa mandarinia japonica is the one that you fear? Why not become a ‘beast creator’? Selectively breed a killer predator that saves the world from the super-strong aphid. You’ll be a hero! ‘There was an old lady who swallowed a fly. I don’t know why she swallowed a fly – perhaps she’ll die?’

NATIONAL ACADEMY DAILY LESSONS

https://www.thenational.academy/

Oak National Academy provides a sequenced plan of video lessons and curricular resources for you to use as you wish. 

This is an entirely free platform, it has been designed to be accessible on any device including mobile, and there are no sign-up or logins required. Whilst the platform has been created quickly, they’ve tried to make it as simple and as user friendly as possible. It will keep improving it in the coming weeks.

Supported by the Department for Education, Oak National Academy is free to use and will be open at least until schools return.

There are two ways you can use these resources:

  • Either, you can use all the lessons and resources in their entirety, following along the set plan of content available for each subject. This default structure will offer a broad and balanced curriculum. Click the Schedule button when inside the online classroom to follow along like this.
