The Summer Reading Challenge takes place over the summer holidays throughout the UK. The 2020 challenge will run from June until September. While libraries are closed, children and families have the chance to take part online and receive rewards for their reading.
For 2020, the theme will be the ‘Silly Squad’, with new, funny characters, ready to bring the UK a seriously silly summer. As well as the usual reading challenge, there will be themed activities and space to share recommendations online too.
On Friday 5th June at 9:30am, the NSPCC will be hosting a special assembly live on their Facebook page with some special guests. Please see information below on what the assembly is about and how to join:
Over the years, our Speak out Stay safe assemblies have taken place in more than 90% of all primary schools across the UK, giving children the knowledge they need to stay safe from harm and to speak out if they’re worried.
While we aren’t able to run our assemblies as normal right now, we are SO excited to announce that Friday June 5th we’ll be hosting our very own VIRTUAL Speak out Stay safe assembly alongside some VERY special guests… Drum-roll please…
Today is a very special day that we unfortunately cannot celebrate as we had planned. However, rather than your usual home learning, as it is a bank holiday, we decided to post some VE Day activities that you may enjoy completing over the long weekend or in addition to your home learning in the future.
First of all, have a watch of the videos to find out why this day is so important in to our history:
This week we have been designing and making our moveable vehicles! This has involved sawing and gluing the chassis, designing a net for the body and fixing the wheels and axles. Next, we need to construct the electronics before we can go for a test drive!
