Welcome to Year 5




Welcome to Upper Key Stage 2 Parent booklet - 2019/20

French Homework Project

Your homework over the next four weeks is to create a project based on ‘France’. 


As it is your project, it is entirely up to you what area you choose and how you present it.  You could look at the different areas in France, food, culture, music, traditions – it’s up to you!

It’s also your choice as to how you present your project -you may wish to make a model, a book, a PowerPoint or something completely different!

As this is a long term homework project, we are expecting you to spend about four hours on your work.  You will then need to present your project to the class – so be prepared.

If you need any help, please ask any of the year 5 staff.

Your homework is due on Monday 25th November.

Have fun!
