Post SATs Projects for Key Stage 2
1. Digital Author Week (#digitalauthorweek)
Your children have the chance to become published authors while still at primary school! It’s simple. Children can include animation, film, audio and illustrations into their Book Creator project.
They choose one option:
- A cartoon strip on any topic.
- An illustrated story or poem on any topic.
- ‘The World would be a better place if…’. a poem, which can be illustrated.
Stories will also be turned into digital books to be published to the iBooks store.
2. Battle Bots with Spheros
This session blends coding challenges, design thinking and bags of fun. Firstly, you will learn to master coding using robots. Secondly, working in a team of 3 or 4 to design and create a unique robot vehicle for a Robot Wars style finale. The battle bots competition is based on the TV series Robot Wars, which is a gladiatorial battle between two or more robots.
3. Making Maths Games – Design Challenges
The children design and market their own maths board games. They will develop and refine ideas, plan and create the game and accessories, research questions and answers, test the game and improve before finally pitching/presenting their games to a panel.
4. Let’s Get Animated Festival
What better way for pupils to celebrate their time at primary school than to write, direct and produce an animated montage of their time at school? Favourite memories, teachers, lessons, friends etc. Once finished these animated celebrations can be shared and watched by the world.
5. Fantasy Writing and VR
Experiencing virtual reality for the first time is always thrilling and fun for children. You’ll hear all the children go “wow”, “ooh” and “aww”. In this session children will write, record and make your own virtual reality story to share.
6. Pupil Prime Minister
With a General Election taking place shortly after half-term, what better time to inspire the next generation of leaders? Pupil Prime Minister challenges children to form their own political parties, create policies and a manifesto to make the world a better place. Then they must draft a speech and produce their own public broadcasts video to attract votes. The public broadcasts are then shared and we ask the whole school to vote, as an alternative you could even go to Twitter and set up a national vote!
