Year 5 have been combining their history research with ICT skills to produce a series of PowerPoint presentations all about the Ancient Greeks. We have been researching this particular historical period in great detail, and learning about Greek culture, food and lifestyles.
The focus in our ICT work has been to create a successful presentation that is able to put across a point clearly and informatively. This seemed liked the perfect opportunity to combine the two subjects!
All of the content for the presentations was research and then put together by the pupils. We offered support about where to look for images, and how to sequence these with the words. As you can see from the video above, this was also a great exercise in giving our Year 5 pupils confidence in their own presentation skills.
