Research Process

1. We each decided on a grandparent to interview and got permission for them to be part of the project.

2. We decided on what topics we were interested in finding out about eg. jobs, school, shops etc.

3. We each asked one of our grandparents to comment the topics.

4. We collated all the ideas and wrote notes about each topic.

5. Then we chose a topic and worked with a partner to type up the notes into full sentences in our Living Heritage story.

6. If we finished our section, we did some other sections or pages.

Also, Mrs McMillan came to talk to us about what life was like when she was young. We did a brainstorm about what we thought she said.

Some of us brought along copies of our grandparents' photos.
