Year 6 (Sycamore, Sequoia and Magnolia)


Half Term Projects

We have set two projects for you to have a go at over half term. Class Dojos will be awarded for the best researched and most creatively presented projects: good luck!

Project 1: World War 2

On 8th May 1945, just over seventy-five years ago, Britain celebrated VE-Day. But what was VE-Day and why was it such an important event?

VE Day

Find out about some of the events that took place during World War II. Who were the key people that were involved in the war? Which countries were involved and why was there even a war in the first place? How were children affected?

Be as creative as you like when presenting your research – you could make a poster, an information booklet, a PowerPoint or even a model.

We will be learning all about World War II when we return to school – it will be great to have some experts in our classes for those lessons!

Project 2:  What a Wonderful World

We live on the most amazing planet: one filled with the most incredible landscapes and geographical features. We have immense waterfalls, powerful volcanoes, stunning coastlines and monumental mountain ranges. We have deep ravines, luscious rainforests, phenomenal weather systems and incredible arctic regions.

What a Wonderful World

Choose one landscape or geographical feature and find out more about it. Where is it located in the world? How was it formed? What does it look like? How does it affect the people who live there?

Be as creative as you like when presenting your research – you could make a poster, an information booklet, a PowerPoint or even a model.

We will be learning more about our amazing planet when we return to school and you will have the opportunity to present your project in those lessons. Those of you who are not returning to school can always upload copies or photos of your work after half term.
