Welcome to Class 6
Our teachers are Mr J Cassap and Miss Brown.
Good morning everyone! Here is an update on tasks this week I would like you to complete.
- For children who might like more arty things, visit Culture Street They have some nice things. Can also make/design own comic strips.
- The Maths Factor is now free to sign up. Apparently for ages 4 – 11. Created by Carol Vorderman.
- Competition to design a book token based around the idea of why it is good/important to share stories. Entries need to be in by April 10th and there are some good prizes if you happen to win. All details can be found at their website.
Recipe ideas with space theme:

- Write or record (on a phone) a daily blog as an astronaut in space (English).
- Create a limerick to help remember the order of the planets (English).
- Design your own alien and write words to describe them (Art and English) – could make him out of old socks (longer the better).

- With permission, watch a space related movie and create a piece of persuasion to promote it (poster/film trailer) – ideally War of the Worlds (12A) as this is the book we would have read, but any appropriate space movie would do.
