Having just spent 20 mins recapping the natural disasters project with a group of year 6’s for the TV interview I have just done…. that is another story… I would say that it is great to do something so relevant and up to date. Unless they have their ears and eyes closed they can’t help hearing about what is going on in Australia. They seemed interested and wanted to discuss what they already knew (Connect). We used this as a lead into our big topic this term which is Inspirational leaders. It gave the teacher the opportunity to talk about how FOSIL works and the skills needed so we don’t have to teach them all again. Although we will focus on notetaking and questions again I am sure. Connie, the year 6 teacher I’m working with, would be more than happy to share the document we have created for Inspirational leaders if you think that would be helpful?
