U9 Task 4 Education Research

The key stages we will be performing to are KS1 & 2. (4-11 year olds) when looking on the curriculums, the topics key stage 1 study are

Maths: 2D shapes, Basic addition and subtraction.

English: Handwriting, basic spelling and sounds of words/letters. Basic reading

History: Victorian workhouses, Tudor periods, Egyptians and Romans.

P.S.H.E: morals, values and Internet Safety.

Science: Materials, their properties and what they’re used for.

KeyStage 2:

English: Grammar, Spelling, handwriting.

maths: 3D Shapes, vertices, faces, additions, subtraction and division

science: properties, basic human biology.

design and technology: Art, still life drawing

history:Victoriam, Ancient Egytions, Guy Fawkes, Tudors, monarchies

geography: How to use a map, where places are, naming continents

art and design: Art, colouring and basic art skills, Picasso techniques

music: instrument names, basic notes and rhythms, playing the recorder and djembe drums.

physical education (PE), including swimming, tennis, bleep tests, gymnastics

computing: PowerPoint, search skills and using word

ancient and modern foreign languages (at key stage 2): French and German, hieroglyphics. I think using mathematics or English would be extremely useful as they’re are main core subjects children might struggle with and making them fun can encourage children to want to learn more about them. For me, I feel these subjects are the most important in the curriculum, along with P.S.H.E that show children moral values. This is also as important as it teaches children life skills early on in life.

  1. Daytona, you were asked, before Christmas, to either copy your evidence from a blog or to link the blog to this page. You have to be able to follow tasks and place evidence where it is expected to be found. The UAL moderator will go to the unit commission pages and will only look there for evidence. Please action this ASAP. Thank you.


  2. I’m again glad that you have now posted this work in the correct section for me to look at it and assess / give you feedback.

    Although you have looked quite generally at Key Stages 1 and 2 you haven’t referenced your information sources at all, let alone using the Harvard system which is what the task asked you to do. There is a significant lack of detail in your findings, for example, you don’t break down the age range for key stage 1 and for key stage 2, you don’t point out that there is an upper lower key stage 2.
    You were asked to select topics from within the curriculum subjects that might work as inspiration for pieces of theatre and to explain why you think this. You haven’t done this part of the task.

    It is vitally important that you read tasks carefully and follow them through in detail if you want to do well. There are a lot of holes in your work at the moment.
