We have reached the middle point in our last week. This is making me feel very nostalgic and I still find it a bit tricky to believe that we are actually approaching the end of the schools year.
I hope you have a great day today and that you will not let the cloudy forecast to ruin your day. Enjoy yourselves, stay active and eats lots of fruits and veggies.
You are amazing!
Stay safe, Mrs S

Now that you have planned all your Superhero powers, we would like you to to create your own Graphic novel, starring yourself as the main character.
Graphic novels are essentially stories told through pictures. However, like other narratives, they need to have all the elements of a good story, such as an introduction of the characters and setting, a build-up, a problem, a solution and an ending.
You will need to use all of your artistic talents, to show what is happening in the story!
You will be allowed to use some writing on the bottom of the individual frames, but essentially the story should be evident from your drawings. Don't forget though, you can use speech bubbles and onomatopoeia to express the character's thoughts and feelings.
Below you will find a fuller explanation of what could be included in your graphic novel, so make sure you check this to ensure you are including all the elements you need. Then print out the comic book templates to use in creating your masterpiece.
We have given you two days to complete this task, so that you can really make this a quality piece of English. Have fun!
Today you will be looking at Lesson 3 - Converting units of time

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.
