Wider Curriculum

Week 1

Learning Journey:

  • Research old British currency from WWII and write war-themed word problems using these units

  • Make a model of an air raid shelter – either Anderson or Morrison. Be creative – what can you use around the house? Paper? Cushions? If it’s big enough for you to get inside, spend a bit of time in there and imagine there is an air raid. How would you feel? What would you be able to hear? Write about it in your exercise book



Use your current knowledge and research online to answer these questions in your exercise book, then create a poster or leaflet about the circulatory system. Think about including a diagram of the lungs or heart.

  • How does oxygen enter the body?

  • How do the heart and lungs work together?

  • How do waste gases get released from the lungs?

  • How do the pulmonary arteries and veins work?

  • How do the alveoli transfer gases into the blood?

  • How does the hear circulate blood through the body?

  • How do valves in blood vessels work?



We learned about pop art on Friday, focusing on Andy Warhol. Take what we have learned further and research one of these artists, creating a piece of artwork inspired by them (e.g. a sculpture inspired by Claes Oldenburg, a collage inspired by Richard Hamilton). Do this research with an adult, as some of their images might not be appropriate for you.

  • Peter Blake

  • Claes Oldenburg

  • Keith Haring

  • Tom Wesselmann

  • Richard Hamilton


Week 2

Learning Journey

This week I want you to get into the wartime spirit of ‘make do and mend’ in which Brits were encouraged to use what they already had rather than going out to buy new things whenever they felt like it (does that sound relevant to today??)


Here are a few examples of things you could do to understand this attitude:

  • Create a toy made of only recycled materials/materials you have around the house
  • Learn to sew a button or darn a hole
  • Fix something around the house – maybe now is the time to learn to use a screwdriver or change a lightbulb (safely, of course)!


Write about what you did and what you learned.


Easter Bonnet Competition

As it is the final week before Easter, this week we are asking you all to create your Easter bonnets for the competition! This year you obviously can’t go out to the shops so we want to see you be creative with what you already have at home. If you don’t have the resources you would like, you can alternatively submit a drawn and labelled design of the bonnet you would have created.


Please send photos of your completed bonnet or design to

Winners will be chosen at the end of the week and results announced on the website!
