We would like you to create a timeline of your life from birth until now. Include significant events, people, places, dates and feelings. Add pictures if you like. Complete this into your homework books. We will be using these in English next week when we start our unit on Autobiographies. This task is instead of the usual comprehension and should be handed in on Wednesday 9th November.
The topic homework project this term links to the English curriculum learning outcome to engage and maintain the interest of an audience. In order to achieve this outcome, we would like all children to prepare a short (around 5 – 10 minute) presentation related to a famous person from the Ancient Greek, Roman or Anglo-Saxon period. While the children are encouraged to use aids such as PowerPoint or cue cards if they wish, a particular focus will be placed on their ability to speak fluently, sustain eye contact with the listeners and present confidently about their chosen individual. Rather than simply reading verbatim from a script or PowerPoint, it is expected that the children will prepare and practise their presentation in good time so as to build a broad knowledge and understanding to support the fluency of their presentation.
Ideas for people to research and present on could be: emperors/leaders, inventors, warriors, mathematicians, philosophers, playwrites, scientists, poets, etc. These presentations will be made in the last week of term, starting on Monday 12th December until Friday 16th December.
