The End of a Crazy School Year

15 Jul

Nyan’s primary/elementary school Year 4 was… unusual, to say the least. We started in August 2019 by going to school for a week, then missing two weeks to return to England for a wedding. So it took a little while to get back up to speed. Then, when the coronavirus took hold, we switched to home-based learning in April 2020, which continued pretty much til June.

The year was supposed to end in mid-June, followed by a two-month summer break. Except they decided to split up the break into two one-month breaks; the first break was the entire month of May, with the school year then extended. So: Home-based learning in April, summer vacation in May, back to school in June (some at home, some back in the school building), and end of the school year in early-ish July, with the new year to begin in mid August. Got all that?

Here’s our hero on that last day of school on July 10, 2020:

One of the assignments early in the year was to write a letter to his grandparents. He did it late because we were in England, but he did it. And it’s a beaut:

At the end of the year, Nyan brought home a big folder chock full of various drawings, poems, and other stuff he had done throughout the year. Let’s take a look at some of them. We won’t bother to try to explain them all; most are pretty self explanatory. (Click on any pic to enlarge!)

MISC WORK PICS (Start with the portfolio cover oic)

Here’s some other assignments, with a more personal, who-is-Nyan kind of bent. Some great drawings too.

Finally, a bunch of random pictures from recent months. (Again, click any pic to enlarge). His attention to detail remains astounding!
