HWB Wiki Pages on the 1980s
In Year 6 we have been creating our own Wiki pages on HWB. Miss Coker and Mrs Davies gave us topics to create our wiki pages upon. Our Wiki pages are about life in the 1980’s, we started our topic by having a homework task to interview someone in our family about what life was like in the 1980’s and to find out specifically about four topics: technology, toys and games, fashion and popular culture. We found out lots from speaking to our family members and were interested to compare our lives now to what it was like for them in the 1980’s. We have used the Habit of Mind gathering data through the senses to find out information by listening to the people we were interviewing and also our own research. In our collaborative working groups we created a tree map about the different categories to sort our information into different topics. We started by creating our Wiki page, the next day we evaluated our wiki pages to check for grammar, creativity and interesting facts. We then had more time to perfect our wiki pages to ensure they were interesting for the audience.
“To start my wiki page I made the heading eye-catching and colourful, then I started adding informal facts, but I made it so it was interesting. It is really fun because I have the opportunity to show my creativity to others around me!” By Ben
“My wiki page was about fashion in the ’80s. I used rhetorical questions and persuasive language to persuade the reader to read on. This helped me to explore my inner creativity!” By Aneeta
Ask your child/ren to log onto their Hwb accounts and show you their wiki page. They have thought carefully about purpose and audience when creating their collaborative online project.
