Our topic in Year Five this term has been Africa and therefore the children did a homework project based on this theme. The children’s presentations and models were exceptional! Below is some of the feedback from the children.
I chose Chad because I did not know anything about it and this encouraged me to find out as much as possible about it.
I chose Sierra Leone because it is not well known and my mum comes from there. My favourite part was making a full sized model of a person and dressing it up in traditional dress. It took me TWO DAYS to complete the model!!
I chose Algeria because it is the largest country in Africa and the 10th largest in the world.
I chose Morocco because it has the biggest desert in it – The Sahara Desert. Did you know that almost four fifth of Morocco is covered by the Sahara desert! The best thing about my project was making the box in which I put facts on strips of paper for my classmates to read out and learn something new.
I chose Egypt because we learnt about it in Y3 and I knew a little bit about it and wanted to find out more. I like this country because it has ancient and modern history.
I chose Mali because the richest person who ever lived came from there – King Mansa Musa.
I chose Egypt because I already knew a lot about it but wanted to learn more. I enjoyed making the pyramid because it was so enjoyable and inspirational.
I chose Uganda because that is where I come from. I liked drawing the map and colouring it in using the Ugandan map colours.
