Dear Parents/ Carers
Every term in Upper Key Stage Two all the children will be expected to undertake a project as part of their homework tasks. The projects will be linked to the current topic the children are studying in class.
We encourage children to work on the project weekly as opposed to letting it build up and rushing it days before the hand in date. We encourage parental involvement; any support you can give your child is really invaluable.
Summer 2 Project
This terms topic- The Apprentice: Would you be hired or Fired?
This term I would like you to find out about a job that someone does – it could be a family member or friend. You will need to find out how you get into that job, what the job involves, good things about the job, downside to the job as well as what personal qualities you would need e.g patience, enjoy talking to people. Once you have done your research I would like you to present the information either as a mini booklet all about that job, a powerpoint. Alonside the information I would like you to include a recruitment poster persuading people to do that job: it will need to tell them why they should apply and who would be suited to it.
The project should reflect approx. 2 ½ hours of work and presented to a high standard.
If you need any resources then please let your class teacher know so we can get them for you.
The project is due in on:- 18th July 2017
Children can receive up to 100 house points for good quality projects which they can then cash in for prizes at our school shop.
If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to contact myself. All Projects information can be found on the website under ‘Classes’ and then ‘Year 6’.
