How to Write a Book Blurb
1 Keep it short. Book blurbs are generally not more than 6 or 7 lines.
2 Use extreme action verbs. Use adjectives like "sizzling", "crackling" or "shattering." Then there's the ever popular "spine-tingling" used for thrillers and supernatural fiction.
3 Make author comparisons. New authors are generally compared to well known ones. These comparisons can be made in a second or third sentence that compliments the original style assessment.
4 Describe the journey. Formulas like "The author takes us through..." or "(Author) introduces the reader to..." are often used to set the stage, giving the reader a preview of the setting or plot.
5 End with a bang. Those who are enthusiastic about a book will often include a recommendation at the end such as "A must-read."

Science - Harmful microbes (4.03.21)
Hi Class 6,
Last week in Science we looked at helpful microbes, I hope that you all enjoyed finding out about yeast and other helpful microbes in foods. This week, we are looking at harmful microbes and how they spread. During the past year, we have all had to be aware of viruses and how to prevent their spread.
This week, I would like you to watch the video below and design a colourful and informative poster to help prevent the spread of microbes. Think about what we need to do; washing hands, catching a cough or a sneeze, using and disposing of tissues safely. You might want to include information on how microbes are spread, why hand washing is important, how we wash our hands correctly and maybe interesting facts about hand hygiene.
I look forward to seeing your posters, maybe you could bring them into school for us to display!
See you all soon Class 6.
Don't forget to Zoom at 10! Use the same details.
I can't wait to have you all back next week! We will be starting 4 week unit on cars. If you have an good non fiction books that we could borrow, please label them with your name and bring them in.
We are able to use some shared resources when you come back but it might be a good idea if you could bring in your own stationary in a pencil case. See you soon!!
Choose some sports you like and dislike. Draw a picture to show this sport and write the name of the sport underneath.
