Topic:

Our topic this term is called ‘In Grandma’s Day’. In this topic we are looking at changes within living memory.

 

Last week, we asked you to work on your very own project. Use this week to continue working on and finishing this. Please find the details of the project below.

 

Think about changes within living memory and beyond. You need to choose a topic for your project. A few ideas are:

  • Travel/Transport (You might want to choose a specific vehicle)
  • Technology
  • Communication
  • Clothes
  • Homes/buildings
  • Schools
  • Household items

You will need to research the history of this topic and how it has changed over time. You can include facts, photos, drawings or videos to show how it has changed. You may present your project in any way you wish. You could present your project as:

  • A PowerPoint presentation
  • A leaflet
  • A poster
  • A video
  • A booklet
  • Any other way you choose

We have included some resources in last week’s topic section, which may help you with your project. However, you do not need to use these.

Phonics:

Ruth Miskin is doing live phonics streaming daily with different sets of speed sounds. She holds sessions at 9.30/10.00/10.30 in the mornings. This follows the same format as our phonics sessions in school. The children can practise set 2 and 3 sounds.
