As Mills will be away for the beginning of year 4 KS2 I will be focusing on the UK Curriculum at that level. Her end of year report showed levels of 3c/3b but as levels are being scrapped I will just generally look at year 4/5 resources and go by Mills’ own strengths and weaknesses. I have made a note of comments and goals from her school books and will draw from them as well as the year 4 objectives set out by the new curriculum.

We are using CGP books for Maths, Science and English but I will try and encompass as many objectives into our own designed projects as possible as we have so much rich content to learn about through our travel.  As I am a web design I want to draw on my strengths and love of technology to give Mills a grounding in design, programming and general confidence in technology by utilizing online tools through our learning experience.

We are in South Korea for the first part of the trip so I have designed a couple of projects based on stuff there –  I know Mills responds well to both visual and kinesthetic learning I will try and build the projects with that in mind.  The project ideas are in the Cross Curriculum Projects section.

The English and Maths pages give a detailed breakdown of what we will be doing.
