Goodbye School, Hello Summer

02 Jul

Nyan finished his Year 5 of primary/elementary school in mid-June, with two months of fun to follow! We’ll talk a lot more about that in upcoming posts. But first, we thought we’d look back at the year that was. 

It was an up and down year, with lots of Covid restrictions and, to cap off the year, several weeks of home-based learning. But Nyan managed to learn a lot, and have a good bit of fun in the process. 

At the end of the year he brought home a big stack of papers and journals and whatnot. We went through them, took photos of a lot of the best writings and drawings, and share them with you here! We don’t have a lot of context for them but you can figure them out. Click on the photos to enlarge to better read what they say – or perhaps just enlarge your browser…

Here’s a fun assignment he did fairly early in the year (November 2020). We’ll include close-ups of the writing for easier reading.

Not sure what this is about but it’s something about how a refrigerator works. Love the imagination, love the drawings, love the descriptions!

More creativity: some sort of invention.

Some random work:

He wrote, and illustrated, a short story about a Viking adventure:

Nyan’s class did a lot of work learning about the various forms of government. He wrote quite a bit about it:

Some sort of poetry assignment, it seems; he chose to write, and draw, about his good friend Arav.

Nyan wrote and illustrated a faux diary entry about a surprise party his parents threw him. (No, this did not really happen!)

Some work he did about some ancient art:

Here’s another hodge podge collection of writing and assignments Nyan did:

And finally, just a few random drawings. Not sure what these are about, but they’re pretty good!

Pretty good school year, we’d say!
