Year 5 Spy (Spies) Topic

Discussion in 'Primary' started by rustysmart, Aug 20, 2009.

  1. We do a creative curriuculum and my new class want to do a topic on WW2 but that imposes on the Year 6 NC links/topics. I therefore thought I could tailor a topic on Spies to excite them but need more ideas!!
    I think Stormbreaker and the Young James Bond books will be a good starting point but need more ideas for literacy and other curriculum links. I also don't want to make it 'boy heavy', being a male teacher, I want to interest the girls too.

  3. What about making it more based on codes- then you can still use James Bond etc, but can also bring instructions/explanation texts into it? Letters to detectives helping them crack a code?
    You could also somehow bring DT into it by getting the chn to design/make a game involving codes? Sort of like a monopoly/cludeo type game with clue cards?
     
  4. Great ideas Trimmer, thanks - that will give me a good starting post
     
  5. Can anyone help - am I missing any obvious books for this topic? (Fiction and non-fiction reccomendations)
    Young James Bond Series / Alex Rider Series are the only ones I can think of at the mo.
     
  6. how about disguises? I have also used problem solving scenarios to promote team building at teh beginning of a new term
