Topic Tasks

Hello to all pupils at Sholing Junior School,

This week we are setting a WHOLE SCHOOL topic challenge. It’s all about the Mayflower. No. Not the theatre, not the park or our Academy Trust! The Mayflower ship.

400 years ago, this famous vessel set sail to the Americas laden with passengers and goods. Back in those days, such a journey was very dangerous and terribly frightening but these brave people, also known as the ‘Pilgrims’, changed the future for America as we know it! It is really important that you find out why!

Did you know, that there are over 30 million American descendants of the passengers and crew who sailed on the Mayflower. That’s one big family!!

It would be great if you complete two topic tasks, brilliant if you complete four, and outstanding if all topic tasks could be accomplished!!!

We hope you enjoy this topic and we look forward to you sharing work with us when you complete each one!

Good luck, and my the sea’s waves, cast you upon the shores of your wildest desires!
