Year 6 Project - Homework for Summer Term 2
For the children’s homework this term, they will work on a project. The project can be a topic of their choice – something they are really interested in or a hobby. Topics could include a type of animal, country, sport, past time, period of history, etc. It shouldn’t be too broad (i.e. it should be a type of animal, not animals in general).
Please see the bottom of the page for a copy of the project and the presentation timetable.
