WWII Personal Project

As part of our World War Two topic, you have a long-term Personal Project to complete (just like the one you created for our Japan topic). This time the theme will be linked to WW2.

Please read the task sheet below very carefully as it has all of the required criteria to succeed and some “helpful hints” to follow. When considering your chosen area to research, please ensure you pick a subject that you are able to research in depth.

 

The completion date for your Personal Project is Monday 16th March . This means you have 4 weeks to work on your project which is quite a long time. Please ensure you use this time wisely and do not leave everything to the final week! We will be checking on your progress on a regular basis. If you need a paper copy of the task sheet, just ask!

Burns Assembly 2019

P7 Burns Poetry Recital

 

You need to choose one of Robert Burns’ poems to practice and recite for our annual school competition. You must rehearse your poem and be prepared to recite to our class and one other class by Monday 20th January. You must let me know your chosen poem by Monday 13th January. Please use the weblinks below to help you find a suitable poem. The poem should be challenging but manageable. As you are P7, you are expected to choose a poem with a minimum of 4 verses (16 lines).

Poem Hunter – Robert Burns

Scottish Poetry Library

BBC – Burns Poems (has some audio links to allow you to hear the correct pronunciation)

As usual there will be one winner chosen from each class after reciting your poem to our own class then another class within the school.

The following are the points you will be judged on:

  • Good, clear diction.
  • Pace
  • A good understanding of the poem.
  • Correct pronunciation of Scottish words.
  • Good facial and vocal expression conveying the sentiment of the poem.
  • Variation in pace and tone.
  • A moderate amount of appropriate gesture if it comes naturally and if it enhances the poem.
  • Over-dramatisation should be avoided as this distracts the audience and detracts from the flow of words.

You must recite your poem in verse, not singing. 

We are also looking for anyone who can play Scottish music, sing a Scottish song or can perform a Scottish dance. Please let us know if you are able to perform at the Burns Assembly.
