Week 12: 30 June 2020: Home learning
Happy Tuesday, Y6!
There’s an extra task I’d like you to do this week so I’ll keep reminding you each day. It’s completely optional but it’d be amazing if we could get everyone in Moortown’s class of 2020 to take part… hint hint!!!
I’d like you to film a short clip of yourself describing a favourite memory from primary school. It could be a sports day, an in joke from class or a funny Y4 residential memory. Get thinking!
If you want to, I’d also like you to add why you’re proud of yourself/why it’s awesome to be you and what you want to be when you grow up.
Send your videos (they can be separate but no longer than 30 – 60 seconds) to my email address:
