Summer Term Home Learning Activities 

 

Make a start on your final Eskdale project: What Eskdale Means To Me.

Traditionally, Year 6 have completed this project in their final half term at Eskdale and it's a good way to sum up your Eskdale experience and to reflect on your time here. Make sure you include memories and experiences on your project.

 

You can take this project in any direction that you wish. In the past, pupils have built model classrooms or the school and stuck memories around them; made posters; presentations; hanging projects with memories on; made scrapbooks; the list goes on!

 

Any pictures of school/staff can be taken from the school website - please do not bring cameras into school. 

 

At the moment, we are unsure if you'll be able to bring these into school (due to current Health and Safety restrictions) but you will definitely be able to share these with photos and videos! So whatever you make, make sure you can take a photo/video of it to email to us. We will share these on the website so you can see everyone else's.

 

 

First, think about what you would like to do and plan it out. Draw some sketches on paper and decide on the materials that you will need to collect.

 

Then, you can start to put it all together!
