Spring Project Homework - Set 10.01.20 Due 11.02.20
This half term, Year 4 will be working on a Great War creative homework project.
During the autumn term, we learnt about WWI and spent some time writing diary entries from soldiers living in the trenches. To further understand trench life, children have been asked to create a model trench.
Please be as creative as you can and use a range of different materials to make your model. Can children also produce a power point presentation to show to the rest of the class. The presentation could be used to show how the project was researched, designed and created. I have included some pictures below to give you some ideas. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any queries.
