UKS2 - Year 5 and 6

Our topic for term 5 is Time Traveller

Please find the support documents below. Don't forget to go to the library to get some of the wonderful books recommended! 

This half term, we’ll make collages to represent our hopes and dreams and create an time capsule that represents life in the present day. We'll use real portraits from the past for inspiration, we’ll write character descriptions about the people in them. We’ll create a timeline of our lives and watch a time-lapse of human development. By taking close-up photographs, we’ll be able to create our own Andy Warhol style prints and experiment to see how photographs can be changed and enhanced. Smile, please! We’ll write adventure stories about the fascinating subject of time travel. We’ll also create clock artwork based on the style of Salvador Dali. 

Help your child prepare for their project There’s a wealth of knowledge about history in your own home. Why not look back at photo albums to see what your parents and grandparents looked like at your age? What clothes did they wear and what toys did they play with? You could also ask family members about their favourite memories and what school was like when they were a child. Alternatively, you could visit your local museum to look at toys, packaging and other objects from the past.
