North East England Project

Last term you all did some wonderful work producing lots of interesting work related to our topic – North East England. I’ve seen pictures, sketches and models of famous landmarks including The Angel of the North, Bamburgh Castle, Grey’s Monument, The Theatre Royal and Alnwick Castle to name a few; I’ve read excellent fact files all about the different areas in our region and some of you have even been to visit some of the places you have researched. Today I want you to begin putting together your PowerPoint or Photo Story that you can show the class when we return back to school. Your slides/story can include pictures of what you have done and / or any sentences you would like to type explaining what you did – 1 or 2 slides is enough. Please don’t send me the slides just yet as I need to ensure I have space in my inbox to receive them all. You will also have time next week to complete your work before we return back to school.

I have reattached the original document in case some of you are still looking for ideas around what you could do.

Friday project

Have a great weekend everyone and see you on Monday!
