Year 6 Lions
Welcome to the Year 6 Lions!
Welcome back. I hope you have had a good break and are all keeping safe and well. This term's value is 'Love', which is very appropriate in these testing times! As we enter another 3 weeks of lock down, work tasks will be updated on here daily. If you need to contact me, please use the contact form at the bottom. However, I won't be able to reply to any messages sent from school email accounts. It has to be your parents' email address.
***I've been informed that one or two of you may have already completed your home work book- well done if you have! Any further work can be done on any paper you can get hold of - or saved in word documents.***
As discussed in school, please find the list of daily activities below. Scroll down for downloadable documents.

Today is 'National visit your relatives day.' It really is, google it!
Sadly, we can't do that at the moment, so your task it to write a letter to a relative explaining what it's been like for you since school closed. Think carefully about who you have chosen. If they are a similar age to you, it could be an informal letter. If the person is older, it may be more formal - especially if you don't see them often. It's very important to consider your audience (who the writing is for). You could even post it - everybody likes to receive a letter through the post!

Your challenge over half term is to make your own animation movie using a method called stop motion animation. Watch the video https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/art-and-design-ks2-stop-motion-animation/zr67kmn.
Simply, you take an object, move it slightly and take a picture. You repeat this over and over - until you have a lot of pictures. Then use a stop motion app to bring them to life. The apps are usually very simple to use and there are lots of instruction videos on the internet.
If you have an ipad, phone or Mac you can use the 'i motion' app already on there (or get a stop motion app from the app store. If you use android like me, there are lots of stop motion apps available on google play for free.
Can you make a message appear on a chalk board? Maybe bring a spaceship to life or create a short lego movie? Create a flower growing using plasticine or clay? All you need is your imagination and a bit of patience.
I can't wait to see what you produce. Remember to email your finished movie to the school office!
Well done for all your hard work this term. Have a great break, stay safe and enjoy Eid. I look forward to seeing you all at some stage next term!
