A 25 page unit of work designed to allow children to discuss, plan and deliver a project related to their own environment. Includes everything you need to deliver. Children develop skills in speaking and listening as they work with their team to discuss and plan their work and present the finished project. Children learn to use persuasive language and write formal letters. They consider the financial aspects of their project and how to manage the project. They present their project to the class using a range of media, and write a newspaper report to publicise their work. Finally they celebrate their hard work by organising a grand opening ceremony.
