Modern History Projects

5th and 6th Class were busy preparing powerpoints and presenting projects this week. 
The Projects focused in on modern history and the children picked a person they admire and presented to the rest of the class. We learned about the great and the good; from Elon Musk to Niall Horan; from Tony Kelly to Tom Jones. There was even room for a presentation on the President of China, amongst others.
The children used powerpoint to as an aid and we were treated to brilliant displays. The children then had to present to the class which can be very difficult. We worked on eye contact and involving the audience.
All in all, history has never felt so modern and alive!
