European Fairs - December 2017
This week, the children in Year 6 enjoyed presenting their European travel fairs to other children in the year group. Over the weeks prior to the event, the children carried out some research about their chosen country: Germany, Belgium, Spain, Russia to name a few. Children displayed their research and information in many different ways: informative posters; landscape artwork; mathematical problems relating to currency; Powerpoint presentations and more. Some groups even brought in food which was linked to their country. All children enjoyed the event and were able to learn a lot along the way.
Welcome to Year 6!
