Country study

Our topic this term in Year 6 has been “Around the World in 30 Days”. This week we finally completed our country studies, and on Friday presented them to the rest of the class. We used peer critique to give each other feedback on our presentations. Year 6, you are now experts on LOTS of countries around the world! I am so impressed by the hard work you put into this, especially those of you who did extra work at home! Well done.
