Celebrating Home Learning

Isaac was inspired by the Language of the Month – Japanese that he created this presentation about a Japanese artist.

Elif made a presentation all about a typical day in her life.

Julie wrote a diary entry. Very touching. I do hope you get to see your friends again soon.
Aarush created a poster about the corona virus with some interesting facts, and designed his front cover and blurb for his story . Very detailed illustrations!
Lucila designed a front cover and created a title for the given blurb.
Emily wrote a poem about her time at Avenue.
Isaac also wrote a book review for the story The Beast of Buckingham Palace and listed some Japanese words and phrases.
Caitlin enjoyed completing the Science experiment to measure the effects of exercise on heart rate recovery. She has shared her table of results, a line graph to show this information and a conclusion. Great work! She also made a poster about the human body, very creative.
Liam thoroughly enjoyed the Body Works topic, so he made a poster about some of the things that he had learned and presented it to his parents. Great facts!

Urgent Swimming Information

Dear Parent/Carer,

You may have already received an email regarding the following message, we are required to collect this data as a matter of urgency.

We are required to collect data regarding your child’s ability to swim. We would have conducted this research in school but will not be allowed to under the current circumstances. It is vital that we have this data for every child in Year 6. Please can you take one minute out of your day to fill in the following questionnaire.

Thank you for your time,

Mrs Marsh & Mr Baldock

Reading Home Learning w/b: 8th June 2020

Last week, you were given the task of creating a title and front cover based on a blurb. Please send in what you have produced – we would love to see them.

The blurb you were given was for a book called Cogheart. See the attachment to see what this looks like. Was yours similar?

J.K. Rowling: The Ickabog

Last week, we posted the link to J.K. Rowling’s new novel: ‘The Ickabog’. She is releasing a chapter or two every day on her website. It is free and you can access it here:

She also needs your help:

Calling all budding artists! J.K. Rowling is inviting you to help illustrate The Ickabog for her. Every day when chapters of the story are uploaded, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw or paint to illustrate the story as it goes along. You should let your imagination run wild!

The best bit is, if you are between seven and twelve years old, your parent or guardian on your behalf can enter your drawings or paintings into the official competition being run by J.K. Rowling’s publishers, for a once in a lifetime chance to be featured in The Ickabog book, which is published in November. The competition is now open in the UK.

Your artwork must be entered by a parent or guardian, via the publisher’s own competition website in your country (see below) – the publishers are going to be judging all the competition entries.

Find all the details on how to enter here:

You do not need to enter this competition, but the Year 6 teachers would love to see your illustrations. Send them to Mrs Nunn so that we can enoy reading the chapters accompanied by your illustrations.
