Week Beginning Monday 22nd June 2020 - 2 WEEK PROJECT
It's so lovely that many of you still refer to the very first lesson that I taught you and I can remember how keen you were to explore this more. As part of our decades work in History, we covered that April 2012 marked 100 years since the infamous TITANIC sank. With this in mind, I'd like to set you a challenge of researching and presenting as much as you can about the Titanic. You may want to create a poster, a PowerPoint presentation, do some artwork, write a newspaper article, write a diary, design/make a game, remake the Titanic out of junk-modelling?! The possibilities are endless. I want you to be as creative as you like and to really enjoy this project work.
Week Beginning Monday 8th June 2020 - History
Following on from our decades work, where we explored and compared events from the 60s with events from the 2010s, we are going to be zooming in more closely on two significant figures from both time periods. I'd like you to do some research on Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake in order to be able to compare the two famous astronauts.
You may want to think about the following:
Why are they famous?
What impact did their missions have?
Is there a connection between the work of Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake?
You can follow the given links to carry out your research, as well as making your own searches.
There are also support worksheets that you can fill out. As always, if you'd like to create a PowerPoint presentation or a poster, I'd love to see what you come up with!
There are a few (optional) fun tasks that you might wish to try!
Week beginning 18th May 2020
This week we are going to be studying an artist called Bridget Riley! Your task is to research the life of Bridget Riley and also the unique art which she created. I will also attach a video for you to try and draw like Bridget yourself!

I hope you enjoyed writing about your inspiration. You are now going to focus on an inspirational figure in religion. I would like you to research the life of Ghandi. Questions I want you to consider:
Who is this person?
What did the individual do that makes them an inspiration to others?
When did they do it?
Where in the world?
Why did the person go above and beyond?
How were they inspired by their faith?
What leadership qualities did they show?
You may present your research on Ghandi however you wish. Below I have posted some websites and videos to help you. Good luck!

Hello Inspirations! This week we are going to be looking at RE. As part of our R.E unit we are going to be looking at inspirational religious figures. Firstly, I would like you to think of someone who has been inspirational to YOU. This could be anybody who has had this positive impact on your life. Can you make notes of why they are inspirational and their characteristics which you feel makes them inspirational.
I have attached a sheet for you to use but please feel free to present this however you wish. Good luck!
