Thanks for adding more to your Flying Sharks story… and I hope you’ve realised that the reason for the ‘wordless stories’ is to encourage you to think of how description can improve your writing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a wee heads up… can you be ready to give me an update on your personal project NEXT FRIDAY (10th June)… I’d like to know the following:

  1. What you are learning about
  2. What you’ve found out so far (Don’t panic, I don’t need any great detail!)
  3. Where you are finding most of your information
  4. What you are working on so you can share your learning
  5. How well you’re getting on (and if there’s anything I can do to support you)

As I say, I don’t need great detail yet (though it’d be nice!), this is just so I can make a few notes for my own reference, and to check that you’re not leaving it to the last possible minute!



Project Task

The task is:

Do you agree with keeping animals in captivity?

You may:

  • Agree
  • Disagree
  • Feel a mixture of agreement and/or disagreement

No matter your point of view, you must try to back it up with reliable evidence. In this case, that means evidence from a scientist or specialist on looking after animals, or someone like David Attenborough. It does not mean your Auntie or Grandad (unless, of course,ย your Auntie or Grandad is a scientist or specialist on looking after animals, or like David Attenborough).

Your assignment needs to be done for the last week of term… any day of the last week is fine. You can submit:

  • an essay
  • an opera
  • a film
  • a powerpoint
  • a talk
  • a poster
  • a piece of modern dance
  • a collection of poems…

In other words, feel free to use your imagination and skills to knock my socks off… ๐Ÿ™‚

This is to be a serious piece of work as far as the science or argument goes, but I insist you have fun doing it, and that you areย proud of what you achieve!

Here’s the What is Beauty? video that a previous S2 pupil created to inspire you:

PS: While I try to check all the comments on the YouTube video, there may be some inappropriate language which I have missed. It is rare, but it does happen. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
