All 4 year groups study very similar things, however I have indicated which year groups learn certain subjects because not all of them carry on learning the same exact thing.

I think that using one of the Core subjects to use as our theme for our show would be a great idea. For example in English we could look at songs or rhymes that will help children remember certain vocabulary or sentence starters. Likewise with Maths we could look at Mathematicians like Einstein and then do a similar thing to English with the rhymes to help them remember or a song about the shapes they know? With science there is a huge variety of subjects to choose from, we could do geology and different rock types, or why the seasons change. Finally I think History would be a great subject to choose as there are so many opportunities to create a story about a historical figure that the children have learned about or will learn about.

However because we are so early on in our project we do not have an idea yet because writing a musical is much harder than writing a script. Also as far as we know we are waiting for schools to tell us what subjects they want us to teach them, however that may change and we may just pick a subject and topic anyway that related to their curriculum when we come to present our ideas.

One thought on “Task 4”

  1. Sophia, it is disappointing that you have again used Wikipedia as your mains source of information and another source written by someone called Michael T as you cannot be confident that the information you have found is current, reliable and accurate. It would have been better to look at the government website for curriculum
    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-framework-for-key-stages-1-to-4 so that you could be absolutely sure of your facts. Imagine how embarrassing it would be if you and your group promoted your piece to a school and it was not relevant so it didn’t get any bookings.
    You haven’t fully explained why you think the topics you have chosen would work well as theatre shows in schools and this is important to be thinking about for this commission. you have identified techniques you could use but not thought about the overall show idea which is what we were looking for.
