Here is a selection of the presentations created by the class to explain how the film ‘The Pirates…In an Adventure with Scientists!’ was made. To gather the information required, the children used search engines on the internet and then took notes whilst watching one of the special features which is on the DVD version of the film. The presentations themselves were created through working together on HWB, with some working on iPads and others on the laptops.
Our class has been named after Llywelyn ein Llyw Olaf. Here is some information about him.
Llywelyn ap Gruffydd was the grandson of Llywelyn Fawr through his son Gruffydd. Llywelyn was the last of Gwynedd princes to attempt to unify Wales and he is referred to as Llywelyn ein Llyw Olaf. Between 1267 and 1277 Llywelyn ruled over three quarters of Wales’ population, but on the 11th of December 1282, he was killed in a battle at Cilmeri near Builth Wells by King Edward I’s soldiers, even though they didn’t know at the time that they had killed the Welsh Prince.

Task 1 (by 28th of November)
I would like you to prepare an English presentation about a country in Asia.
You will be expected to talk for about four or five minutes on the topic. You may bring notes with you to the presentation but you must remember that this is not a reading assessment and therefore you will not be allowed to read the notes. I strongly suggest that you prepare some sort of presentation to support you (e.g. Ppt on Hwb or Prezi – with a maximum of 5-10 words on each slide).
Perhaps your presentation could cover some of the following topics: general facts; geographical facts; history; food; religion; languages; culture and traditions; folklore; famous people; music etc. You will need to practice in the house before coming to school!
