World war two and a P scale child in a KS2 class help needed

Discussion in 'Primary' started by monkey1, Apr 18, 2012.

  1. Hi
    I am just wondering whether anyone could be of any help. I have a child who is part of our class for two days a week she goes to a special school for the rest of the week. When she is a member of our class she has her own literacy and numeracy targets which she works with with a 1-1 ta as she cannot access our level curriculum. Within science and PE she joins in as much as she can with differentiated work.
    This term we are studying WW2 - I have found that for the rest of my class we are looking int things in a bit more detail and they are keen to know more and more about each area!
    The question is how can I make this topic accessible to a child working at p scales. She does like practical activities so she can join in with the art/hands on lessons - its just the angle to take.
    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you seen this document? The P scales for history are near the back of the document and before that are ideas. They are not 'WW2' specific but may be helpful.

    Could she join in with building an 'Anderson Shelter'? I know some Year 6 children did this at my school and then tested their shelters by pouring buckets of water over them and seeing how secure there were!
     
  4. Which P-levels is she working at? What are her literacy targets for this term?
     
  5. Can you use artefacts, pictures etc and just ask her what she thinks the things are and how they were used during WW2? Keep it visual and make use of topic loans from your local museum. I'm doing Victorians soon and have just planned a few bits and bobs for my new boy who is way, way below the rest of the class He will mainly be looking at pictures and talking with the TA about the items, then writing simple sentences
