See the description of the book below:

The Last Wild : Kester lives in Spectrum Hall, an academy for challenging children. Unable to speak since separation from his parents, he unexpectedly finds he is able to communicate with a cockroach who helps him to break out from his prison-like existence. He has been lead to believe that all the animals in the outside world have died of disease and that human beings are under the same threat. But is this true? And what are the motives of those who spread these rumours? Kester is about to find out. A dystopian adventure with significant environmental and political themes

Homework for Carnival holidays

Dear students,

For carnival holidays you have been assigned with some fun activities to enjoy at home! 🙂

For Numeracy: On the 14th of March is the international day to celebrate the number Pi (π).The holiday is celebrated on 14th March, since 3 (the month of March) 1 and 4 (the 14th day) are the first three and most well-known digits in the decimal form of pi.

In Year 6 class we have been learning how to calculate the circumference of a circle using the number pi. C=2 x π x radius. Celebrated on March 14, Pi Day is a very special day in the lives of many people devoted to Pi. And what better way to sink your teeth into the celebration than by making and eating pi pie?!! Year 6 students you are each responsible for bringing in school juice, forks, pies, plates, and whipped cream!! You will need to bake a pie, calculate the circumference (extension: the Area too, A = π x r x r )  of your pie using the formula and bring it in school to celebrate the day!                                                         Additionally, investigate the number pi and write some interesting facts about it in your book.

Literacy/International mindedness Activity: On an A3 poster design your impression of your culture/home country. Your poster will be displayed around our Primary school to promote the Primary Celebration for Mother Tongue on the 30th of March. Therefore, your work should be neat and presentable, but most of all your work should reflect your ideas and your love for your home country and culture. You can draw one or more pictures of great landmarks in your country or cultural practices, activities, special events and traditions your family enjoys doing together. Don’t forget to add some writing or vocabulary in your mother tongue! 🙂

Have a fantastic holiday everyone!!

Enjoy carnival and see you soon! 🙂

Best wishes,

Ms Chalkiopoulou
