Thanks to Year 6 students Ciara and Frankie for the following report.
On the 25 September, Year 6 did their FLIP presentation. The incredible ideas this year ranged from food to woodwork, research and photography. Year 6
showed their imagination and talent, working on a project of their choice for nine weeks. Students had to answer a driving question that they set for
themselves and make five smaller questions that answered the driving question. Year 6 posted their work every week on a discussion group, suggesting
ideas to their class peers.
On the day of the presentation, some students entered their classrooms with huge projects and others with smaller ones that were well thought out. Laura
Gelding had a very good idea of making the Santiago Bernabéu stadium out of wood. Jemma Annable also had a unique idea of making her own candy
dispenser out of cardboard! Some boys made skateboards, longboards and books. There were some great ideas presented this year and there was lots of
effort put in. FLIP was sensationally fun and challenging. We hope you enjoyed our presentations as much as we did!

In Year 6 we do a project called FLIP which stands for Free Learning Independent Project. This project allows students to show what they are interested
in and teach others about it. You can learn about anything, from dancing to skateboard riding.
For my project, I conducted a test between breads to see which one people prefer. The two breads where white wonder bread and homemade whole grain. To
my surprise, most people chose my homemade whole grain. I chose this because I like to bake and I wanted to try something new.
One of the other projects I liked was Izzy’s cake decorating. She chose this because she likes to bake and experiment with new recipes. She made a two-layered
cake with cream cheese icing and pink lollies on top.
Another one that was good was Jonah’s because he made a hockey stick out of wood. He chose this because he likes ice hockey and sport and he didn’t know
much about it and wanted to learn more.
In the classroom, we used our desks to display our work and present to Year 5 students, parents and teachers.
