Year 4 Independent History Project

During the last 2 weeks of term, Year 4 students will be asked to present to the class without using a script. They can choose any period of history or historical figure of interest to them up to World War 1. They can use posters, models, costumes etc to aid their presentation. Time will be given during history sessions to prepare.
The focus is on ‘correct use of oral English’.
Here are some useful websites:
