My last post on our cars and Karting mentioned the project work that we had set Yr 6 for over the holidays. Instead of our normal – ‘show what you know’ homework that they usually have every fortnight we thought we would extend this to a project. The brief was to demonstrate an element of the terms work that had appealed to them – they could be as creative and imaginative as they wanted.
The work was due in on Friday and all I can say is for me it was one of those days that I truly know I have the best job in the world! Their imagination and creativity combined with their knowledge produced amazing pieces of work. You don’t have to take my word for it as I have included some in the slide show below:
Normally over the Easter Holidays the homework set for the Year 6s is revision – yes they also had their revision books. However we also felt that the creative/imaginative side should also be catered for – it is the first time we have set this kind of homework over this period, but will be repeating it again. The children – according to some parents I spoke to – spent hours on their work – they were motivated and engaged with their learning and wanting to demonstrate what they had learned over the term. Isn’t this what we want from our learners?
