We have reached the last Thursday of this academic year. How do you feel about this? It makes me quite emotional because I will miss you all! But, in the same time, I know you will be starting a new amazing adventure and I know you will be absolutely fantastic.
A random fact I have found about ladybugs. Did you know that a group of ladybugs is called a loveliness?
Isn't this cute?
Keep up the amazing work, you can do this!
Love, Mrs S and Mr Wheeler

It is quite lengthy so that is why we have given you two days to complete it. You don't need to print it all out if you don't wish, answers on paper will be fine. The answer booklet is attached so you can see how well you have done! Have fun!
Today we will be looking at Lesson 4 - Timetables

We thought to test your computing, editing and artistic skills this week. Don't panic, there is nothing to worry about.
Your task for this week will be to create a meme about Year 6. Ideas that could go on the meme could be around Y6 behaviour expectations, subjects, friendships, lessons, teachers, wishes etc.
What is a meme? A meme is an idea, behaviour, or style that spreads by means of imitation from person to person within a culture and often carries symbolic meaning representing a particular phenomenon or theme.
A meme is something such as a video, picture, or phrase that a lot of people send to each other on the internet.
You can get inspiration from the internet, but be mindful to only use websites that are secure. Before doing this, check with your parents for permission.
In order to create your meme, you can use various programmes like Paint, Word PowerPoint, Publisher.
To make the meme is quite easy, once you have chosen your background image, paste onto the chosen programme then, all you need is add a text (about Y6) on top of it and play with it's positioning.
Creativity is the buzz word so be as imaginative as you want, but I urge you to be sensible and respectful in the message you want to transmit.
