The big idea  - Design a home for the future  

How to do it 

Homes come in many different forms and are often different depending on the climate and the needs of the people that live in them. Have you  ever wondered what homes may look like in the future? This activity is all about imagining the future and designing a home that will meet the  needs of all the people that will live in it. This activity can be in the form of written work with diagrams and drawings or you could make a 3D  model of your home. 

Think about: 

  • Where your home is and what country it is in. It may have different needs if it is in a city, town or in the countryside
  • What materials it could be built out of. Many traditional homes in the United Kingdom are built out of bricks, but this might change in the  future 
  • What people might be doing in the future which would change the way their home is built. In the last few years, more people in this country  work from home due to improved communication. Will this be the same in the future? 
  • What children may use their homes for in the future. Will the games they play and how they learn change from what we do now?

Getting started:

  • Once you have jotted down your main ideas, you may want to sketch out an initial plan of your home or create a plan for writing 
  • You could either draw the outside of your home with labels or do a cross-section drawing of what it might look like inside (a shape that has  been cut through to show the inside). Your drawing will have extra impact if you add in some captions that will give some more information  e.g. the materials that have been used to build the home 
  • If you are going to make a model of your home you could use the following materials: cardboard boxes, paper, bubble wrap (ask an adult to  supervise this), silver foil, paints, crayons, lolly sticks or clean food wrappers 

What you will learn  

Designing a home for the future will help you to: 

  • Research different homes from around the World 
  • Use your imagination 
  • Use your art skills

Make or write a ‘good news’ newspaper article about your home or the people in it  

How to do it 

This activity is about creating a newspaper article about your home. You can do this in lots of different ways.  

Getting started: 

  • Think about what you want to write about and whether the article going to be about your home itself or about the people who live in it. You  might want to write about something amazing that someone has done over the last few weeks. For example, if you have created  something, such as a den, then this could feature in the article  

Different ways to do it: 

  • You could cut up old newspapers or magazines (when people have finished with them!) to make your article. Cut up the words to make  your story and try to make it a positive story about something good that has happened 
  • Use photos that you may have or create new photos from existing pictures in magazines  
  • Consider writing the article using a frame for a newspaper article (outline) in the traditional way  

The features of a newspaper include:  

  • The name of the newspaper and the name of the reporter 
  • A catchy headline to grab the attention of the reader 
  • Written in the third person and the past tense 
  • An introductory paragraph using the 5Ws – what, where, when, who and why  
  • The main events presented in chronological order  
  • Use of photos or pictures with captions  

They might also use reported or direct speech to show what someone is saying. 

  • Reported speech is when the speaker’s words are reported by someone else e.g. he told us that… 
  • Direct speech is the actual words of the speaker e.g. “It was an exciting adventure,” she said. 

What you will learn  

By writing or creating your newspaper article you will: 

  • Use your imagination 
  • Improve your fine motor skills if you cut up the articles 
  • Improve your writing skills
