 After SATs, the children will not be given any formal homework. Instead we are asking the children to choose a topic to research and then produce a 5 minute presentation to give to the rest of the class on Thursday July 5th. The presentation can be delivered in a medium of the children’s choice such as models, PowerPoints, demonstrations etc. Please be aware that the school’s network is not compatible with Apple products. These presentations should reflect 8 weekends of homework. The teachers are available to give advice.
