Friday fun bonus activity:


Below is an activity about making your own "Stonehenge."  You can do this however you want to, using whatever you have access to.  You MIGHT be able to make more than one example by using different materials.  It needs to look accurate so try to make sure you use the correct number of stone and position these correctly!


I wonder what you will come up with.  Please send me pictures of what you get up to!

Monday 1st March - Presenting the Presentations!

For those of you who for whatever reason may NOT have been able to complete a presentation, I have attached my Powerpoint presentation below, plus my Powerpoint but in picture format (in case you can't open on Powerpoint).  You are welcome to present mine though I will only be evaluating certain criteria then.  

Alternatively, you can present your chocolate booklet and I will evaluate how you get on with that.

Hope this helps! smiley

Below is my example of a booklet.  Remember this is for you to make/write by hand (although you may choose to print some pictures).  I have not completed the glossary, as if you are doing one of your own, it would be good to look up the definitions.  Remember to search as follows/here is an example:  "Definition of Emperor for kids."  I have highlighted "for kids" since you need to understand the definition you are writing down.  Good luck! yes

Friday 26th February - Powerpoint (or equivalent) Presentation

You may wish to watch the following videos or not - it is up to you!  They show a few skills that may come in useful on Powerpoint though you may be better asking an older sibling or grown-up if you can, just because it is difficult to show you on a screen like this! laugh

If you put my Powerpoint into Slide Show format, you can see some of the skills I have used to present this.  Remember what I have said about the information being the important part though!
