After half term the children will be writing a holiday guide about a place of their choosing. In preparation for this, we would like them to spend a little time researching a destination. This can be done online, at the library or by visiting in person. The place could be a country, city or resort, and it can be local or abroad. If you are having a family holiday or a day trip during half term, then that can feed into the research. Children can record this in anyway they choose – by writing some simple notes, taking photographs and captioning them, creating a PowerPoint or a Word document (both available through Hwb).
A good starting point if you aren’t travelling to the destination is the Google Earth website. The intention is not for children to have written their holiday guide over the half term, but simply to have an idea about which place they’d like to write about and to have some ideas of the kinds of content they could include.
