In this vehicle, the children will be reminded that Ms Barton is retiring and to celebrate her retirement, we are going to host 'This is Your Life, Julie Barton', but it must be kept as secret as possible. The children will start by learning about the TV programme, This is Your Life and interview people close to Julie. They will then decide the most significant events and information, and create a script for the show. The children will work collaboratively to create a song about Julie's life. They will take ownership of this vehicle by deciding the significant events, information and pictures, to place in the 'This is Your Life' book, which will be presented to Julie at the end of the show. Time will be given for children to interview close friends, family and past and present colleagues, film part of Julie's school life and make a video to present at the TV programme premier. Towards the end of the vehicle, children will host 'This is Your Life' to KS2 children and adults. The 'This is Your Life' book will finally be presented to Julie at the end of the programme.
This will be broken down into weeks as shown below (the journey below is our intention but as the vehicle evolves it may be adapted).
During this vehicle, there will be discrete computing weeks and a discrete science week whereby the children will learn about coding and working scientifically.
Please note: Alongside this learning, the children will be learning elements of our School Curriculum as well as the National Curriculum. Where possible, the English learning will be woven into this vehicle although there will be discrete teaching for English, Maths and other subjects where the learning does not fit.
Please see our vehicle journey below to learn more about each week!
