Summer 2, Week 7: 13th July
The Final Week of the School Year
I'll miss you, Crested Owls!
As we complete the final days of the 2019/20 academic year, take a moment to CONGRATULATE yourself on persevering through so much. Over the next week, you may even encounter more hurdles (and worries) as you begin to think about what the new year may bring. If you are due to being Year 6 in September, you may be nervous about coming back to school after so long away. You may be in a new classroom and you will have a new teacher. Some of you may receive some pictures of your new teacher and classroom, to put your mind at ease. If not, feel free to email the school, and we will do our best to prepare you for upcoming change.
If you are moving up to secondary school, you may be wondering what your new school will look like or who might be in your class. Try to do some research online about your new school, as you will probably find some pictures and videos from past events. Your new teacher(s) may even be pictured on the secondary school website or you may find a 'Welcome video' or virtual tour.
Don't worry about any subjects or areas that we haven't learned about due to the partial closure of school - every school and teacher will be ready in September to make a fresh start in picking back up where you left off!
This week at school, Germany Pod made spiced honey cakes (more like small biscuits) called lebkuchen or honigkuchen. These ginger-cinnamon-orange biscuits are popular at Christmas-time in Germany, and date back to the 13th Century (though honey cakes have been around since Ancient times)!
CLICK HERE for the recipe we copied exactly.
We made giant bubble wands and experimented with dish-washing liquid mixtures to get the bubbles at their biggest! We also partook in an adaptation of 'The Game of LIFE' where we earned money from a job, bought or rented a house and went on virtual holidays. We learned a bit about how to be responsible with money - but mostly we had fun saving and spending pretend pounds!
