Summer Reading Challenge
The Summer Reading Challenge is delivered in partnership with public libraries and funded
by Arts Council England. The Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to enjoy the
benefits of reading for pleasure over the summer holidays, providing lots of fun as well as preventing the summer reading ‘dip’. This year, the Summer Reading Challenge’s Silly Squad will celebrate funny books, happiness and laughter. Children taking part in the Challenge will join the Silly Squad, an adventurous team of animals who love to have a laugh and get stuck into all sorts of funny books! With the disruption caused by Covid-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and public libraries, the 2020 Challenge will launch in a new digital format designed to keep children engaged and interested in reading. The Challenge will run from 5 June to mid September. The Summer Reading Challenge website is free to access and features games, quizzes and downloadable activities that incentivise and encourage children to take part in reading related activities.
What books have you been reading whilst you have been Home Learning?
My eldest son read The Boy in the Tower and now my youngest son is reading it. They are both enjoying it!
My daughter is reading Lightning Girl 4 (Superhero Showdown). Highly recommended!
I have read a variety of books - an autobiography about Adam Henson, a story about the concentration camps in WW2 and lots of others! My daughter and I have also completed lots of 500 piece jigsaws!
How many of you planted seeds to enjoy in your outside space? We did but I think the birds have enjoyed eating them! I cheated and bought some that had already been started off! Once they start flowering more I will post some pictures to share with you.
Dear Year Five,
Hope you are all keeping safe and well.
Every day I have been out for a walk with 2 of my children. I thought I would share with you the various animals we have seen along the way. Can you name them?
Perhaps you could share with me your nature pictures and I can add them to the slideshow below.
We are all beginning the Summer Term working from home. It is a new situation for us all and we are all doing our best to deal with it.
I am missing seeing you all in class but hope you have managed to achieve a daily routine for yourselves.
Thank you to those children who have sent in work for me to see. Well Done! I have enjoyed reading your stories, seeing your Math work, DT Challenges and everything else you have achieved.
Keep looking at the Class web page, it is updated weekly with new challenges to inspire you.
Keep up the amazing good work.
Class Trip to Waddecar
On Tuesday 10th March, we will be going to Waddecar Scout Camp to learn about Rivers. It will be a fun and wet day, hopefully without rain! Children must wear wellies and outdoor clothing. A spare pair of socks would be useful. In the afternoon, they are Orienteering around the grounds.
We will continue to visit Mount Carmel for 3 weeks, learning about Food. The children will have the opportunity to cook using the kitchen facilities at Mount Carmel.
Move and Learn
Every Tuesday in the Spring Term, Josh from Accrington Stanley, will be working with Year 5. We will learn about Health and Exercise.
For the last 3 Wednesday afternoon's of Spring 1, we will be returning to Mount Carmel for some Design Technology work.
So far, we have learnt French and used the bunsen burner's in Science.
30th January we performed at the MEN Arena as part of the Young Voices Choir.
