To introduce our Year 6 students to some of the basic research skills (Information Literacy) needed when using books we have teamed up with Humanities to help deliver a Yr 6 Induction Activity that we have successfully run together for the past few years.
Basically we provide several resource boxes that contain the relevant books which would give the answers to a list of questions.
The questions are all based upon a named Continent and include a Geographical, Historical and Religious based question.
MRC Staff work alongside the teacher in the classroom with the students to help them to select Keywords; use Contents Page; Indexes and make notes.
A really nice, simple but effective session for Year 6’s.
