Homework and Projects Summer term 2019
Well done everyone for the fantastic projects that you brought in last term and the beginning of this term. Here is a new bingo grid with homework projects related to our prehistory topic of The Stone Age and science topic of Rocks. You can choose to complete the tasks in any order. The first piece of homework should be brought in by Friday 12th May.
- How you present the information/finished work is up to you, but it will be suitable for keeping in your project journal (A4). Those who choose to complete projects using various digital formats will need to print out their final versions so they can be added to their journals.
- Work needs to be well presented and of a Key Stage 2 standard.
Get creative : Make a collage out of pictures of rocks or pebbles. You could create a picture out of rocks and natural materials and take a photograph of your creation to bring in to school.
