This is a small selection of some of your wonderful work, Year 7. I am still madly correcting it, but I am already impressed by the flair and creativity you have shown. Dhruv, for instance, designed a fully collapsible set of medieval houses; when you open the doors and windows you can read a timeline of the early history of the English language.
Dhruv's medieval street - with educational doors and windows
Another clever design is much smaller – a pocket-sized encyclopedia timeline of the Norman Conquest, created by Emily.
Harshdeep produced a truly beautiful timeline and she was so modest that I had to wrest it from her to photograph it for this blog. Well done, Harshdeep.
Emily chose an ear of wheat as the symbol for her Stone Age timeline. This was highly appropriate because people gathered wheat that grew in the wild in the Old Stone Age, then planted it and grew crops in the New Stone Age. A brilliant idea, Emily!
Mammoths running along beside a river - what an apt metaphor for the Stone Age! I guess it also reminds us that these remarkable creatures became extinct, sadly a common event in human history. Victoria has drawn mammoths for posterity in this clever and beautifully executed timeline. Great work, Victoria.
Dhruv's timeline has a quirky charm. I especially like how he has drawn the eyes of the animals. They look kind of surprised, as if being in a timeline is almost too much of an honour for them to believe their luck. Great work, Dhruv!
Sam chose a wild goat (an ibex) to represent the hunter-gathering part of the Stone Age, and a domesticated goat to represent the beginning of farming and herding. An original and clever notion, Sam!
This nomadic lifestyle has its drawbacks, but hey, at least I don't have to do any homework...
