PLANS

I have lots of plans!

I deleted all my units for the rest of the year so that I could rewrite them.
Now we have:

Grade 6
Currently doing the BBC School Report, (my lesson plans can be found here).
March-AprilCardboard Challenge! Students will build a cardboard arcade inspired by the documentary Caine's Arcade, using resources from the Imagination Foundation's Cardboard Challenge
May-June
A Food Tech unit, probably a picnic themed one or one relating to a book they have studied this year.


Grade 7
Currently doing a unit where they learn to code and then teach our grade 6s to code, (my lesson plans can be found here).
March-April
A Food Tech unit. Students will created an edible cinema experience, (inspired by Edible Cinema). Here all students will be off timetable and will watch a film together. There will be lots of small dishes and a menu telling you exactly when to eat the dish - these will be inspired by food in the film or things happening in the film.
May-June
Guerrilla Gardening! Students will learn about Guerrilla Gardening and will make seed bombs and plantable paper. We will also start a small herb and vegetable garden!


Grade 8

Currently doing a unit where they learn to code and then teach teachers and parents to code, (my lesson plans can be found here).
March-April
Cardboard Challenge! Students will build a cardboard arcade inspired by the documentary Caine's Arcade, using resources from the Imagination Foundation's Cardboard Challenge.
May 
An App Shed unit - where students get to design and create their own apps. There will be a theme to this, but it is undecided at the moment.
June
I will be doing a project with the maths department. Students will create a blog as their favourite mathematician, it will include videos, a fake Facebook and Twitter feed, and hopefully we will get the different mathematicians interacting! Although this might sound a bit dull for some groups, it is something that the grade 8s will love, get excited about and they will produce very interesting blogs!


Grade 9

Currently doing a food tech unit - this however is top secret - I will post more information after our event.
March-April
I will be doing a joint project with the maths department, where students will code Arduino robots! We may also look a bit at how robots are benefiting the world, with special attention played to these rad Paro Therapeutic Robot SEAL PUPS - make to keep elderly people company!
May-June
An App Shed unit - where students get to design and create their own apps. There will be a theme to this, but it is undecided at the moment.
