Background

To build further on your presentation skills you have to prepare a personal project to present to your peers. Presentations play a huge part in our learning and being able to present to your peers, with confidence, is a great skill to learn.

Task

What you need to know: Your personal project should be about the River Clyde. You may choose any aspect you wish.

What you need to do: You can present your project in any way you choose. This might be in written form, a PowerPoint presentation, a booklet, a video or even a model. In other words, you have the choice to choose the way you feel will best help you to demonstrate your knowledge of your chosen topic. This project is all homework based therefore you need to think about the resources you will have access to: books, library, internet, personal accounts etc.

What you need to think about: You can use whatever you need to describe your personal project: photographs, videos, props etc. Try to think about why you picked this area for your project. What was it that interested you about it? Remember some people in class may know nothing about the area you have chosen to discuss, so you must explain it in detail.

How to get started: Get all of your ideas down on paper and then decide which ones are the most relevant and will best engage your audience. If you require any resources (paper, etc.) from school please ask.

 

Product Criteria

·         You have 3 weeks to pull your presentation together so use your time wisely. You will be presenting your information to the class the week beginning Monday 8th October 2018. Remember to try and present your information in a creative way.

·         This is an independent research project. It is your responsibility to organise your time effectively and ensure you are putting in enough effort.

·         Everyone will approach this task in different ways so don’t worry if your friends are doing something different from you. Have faith in what you have to say and it will all work out.

·         This is your chance to show just how well you can take responsibility for your own learning.

Happy researching!

P5S – Today’s Topic

Image result for groups working together

Today we joined our new topic groups. After completing our talking chips task, you had the opportunity to “put your voice on the table” in your new groups. We then took part in a team building task. I was very impressed at just how well many of the new groups worked with one another. It was just wonderful to see! Well done! Please tell someone at home what you had to do.

This afternoon you worked on a Home Team Challenge for our new topic: The River Clyde. Together you had to discuss what I would see and hear you doing as a group. We had some great suggestions: listening to one another, no talking over others, one person talking at a time, good communication, sharing of ideas to name a few.

Your task for today was to come up with a group name linked to the River Clyde. You then had to create a wall space banner and header which displayed the qualities ans skills of each group member. Again, I was very impressed at how well you completed this task. Keep it up Primary 5!
