Spring Term Homework Project
Your homework for Techno-Tastic will be spread over the whole half term - I will be giving you tasks each week, that will all build up to an end product.
Like Professor Brainstawm, I want you to invent something completely new, the crazier the better! You will eventually make a prototype of your invention and bring it in to school, where, it will be judged (Dragon's Den style) by me and Mr Morgan. There will be a prize for the most creative and useful invention!
You can invent anything you want, but it has to be new, creative and useful - it has to have a purpose. Something we've not seen before. It also has to be realistic and something that you will actually be able to make. For your homework this week I want you to actually come up with an idea... the hardest part. I want you to draw it in your Learning Logs and write a list of the materials you would need to make it. I want these inventions to be as ECO-Friendly as possible, so I would like to see them made out of recycled or recyclable parts.
Deadline: Monday 22nd January (In the box).
Autumn Half Term Homework
When we come back after the holidays, our writing genre will be Newspapers.
So we can be amazing journalists, I would like you to do some research.
We will be reporting on the first human heart transplant, carried out by Professor Christiaan Barnard in 1967.
We will pretend to be journalists writing in 1967, the day after the transplant.
As always, the more research you do, the better your article will be. You don't have to write an article, you just have to research facts so you are ready. The better your homework, the better your classwork will be.
Research things like,
- Where it happened
- When it happened
- Who was it done to, who was there?
- What did the operation entail?
-How was the patient after it?
Think about/find people who you could 'get' quotes from and what they might have said.
As always, the homework can be done however you like, but it has to be in your Learning Log and IN the box by Wednesday 8th November.
