Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas – Street Detectives

 

Grab a magnifying glass, put on your deerstalker and change your name to Sherlock because we’re going to become street detectives!

 

This half term, we’ll take pictures of the buildings, businesses and plants we can see. We’ll learn nursery rhymes, write poetry and create persuasive adverts. Looking at photographs will help us to spot any similarities and differences between the houses and shops of today and the past. We’ll find out about the history of our school. We’ll also study and draw maps, create a model of a local building, draw portraits of the people we have met and look at the work of urban artists.

 

This project runs for the second half of the Autumn term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home. 

 

Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.

  • Keep your street diary updated with all the exciting things that happen in your street. Remember to use interesting adjectives and verbs. Look in detail at the outside of your own house and make a careful observational drawing. Draw a plan or map of your ideal neighbourhood. Who would you like to have living on your street? What type of house would your ideal neighbours have? Create a key to show features on your map.   

  • Watch a clip of a film made to show family life in the 1930s or life in the 1960s (BBC Learning Zone Class Clips is a good site).  

  • Talk to your grown-ups about how life was different for children in the past. Draw pictures and write some sentences to share at school. What things are better or worse today? 

  • Draw and label a design for your own fantasy home. What will your home be built from? How will you get in and out of your house? What will you have in your garden?  

  • Make a model of your fantasy house using junk materials. 

  • Find out and list the types of building machinery needed to build a house. Draw or download images of each vehicle and write a description of what it is used for. Perhaps you could make a non-fiction book or PowerPoint presentation to show what you have found out? 

  • Visit a local shop with your grown up. Write a shopping list before you go. Pay for your shopping and work out your change. 

  • Make a leaflet or short film all about your local community. Include drawings, photographs or footage to show what you can see and do there. Write or record your thoughts on what is like to live there as well as ideas for improving it.?  

  • Imagine that you are trying to explain to a new person starting our school how to be a good friend. You could create a poster or a leaflet on what makes a good friend and have some pictures and examples of how you have been a good friend to your friends.  

At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.

Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed

Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete

Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
