Below is a brief reminder of why we do Home Learning Projects, and what we are hoping they will achieve:


1. Each presentation should demonstrate roughly 3 hours of work across the half term, i.e. half an hour or so a week over the half term. Aim for a presentation of between 3-5 minutes. Starting early is usually the key to a successful presentation, and allows the children to speak confidently about their learning.


2. Every child is expected to prepare a presentation; they enjoy watching each other's work and are a perceptive audience! Please do not allow your child to copy and paste large chunks of text - The presentations are designed to allow children to explore an area of learning that interests them, and for them to be able to explain what they have learned in their own words. Children are also able to speak and present more confidently when they can read and understand the information that they have brought to show, as well as being able to answer questions about their presentations from their audience. 


3. There is no expectation with regard to how you and your child wish to record their learning.  In the past, children have used the visualiser to show pictures, tables and graphs; created their own PowerPoints, booklets, and posters;  made photograph montages, built models and explained the steps they took to make them; and created interactive quizzes, and so on.  We would, however, prefer the presentation to be "live" rather than prerecorded so that they have the chance to practice public speaking in front of an audience.


Please don't hesitate to ask if you are worried about any aspect of the presentations.  Please see ParentMail for more information about when your child will be expected to bring their project into school.
