Autumn 2 Homework Project


This term we are asking the children to research a country that has qualified for the World Cup! A draw took place in assembly and each class across the school designated a different country.

1 Darwin drew Tunisia

1 Sharman drew Morocco


Children can design posters, use PowerPoint or give a talk on their chosen country.

They can talk about things such as population, languages spoken, weather etc


We look forward to seeing what they come up with!
