At the end of our topic we will be holding a Seven Wonders of the World exhibition where people will be able to view your projects; you must know all about your project as you will be asked to talk about it. The exhibition will be a Wednesday 21st November in the Hall straight after school. Parents and staff are welcome to come and see your fabulous work.

 

Projects will be due in 12th November.

 

We look forward to seeing all your amazing artefacts!
