Summer Term Homework Project

We really enjoyed our topic launches today where we were recapping and learning locational knowledge linked to our topics over the years! We also looked at lots of famous landmarks and their locations around the world: some we knew already and others that were new to us. Have you decided which one you are going to re-create? Let us know here…

Remember, the only limits are your imagination! I know everyone will be blown away if anyone decides to incorporate any of our science learning on circuits, motors and switches 😉 but I’m also sure that whatever you decide to do will be fantastic!

You can make any of the landmarks that we looked at today or another of your own ideas and you can use any materials that you want to. We’ll try our best to help with materials so if you need anything, please just ask!
