Lower Key Stage 2
VIRTUAL SUMMER READING CHALLENGE 2020
The summer holidays are a great time to take off to new places , escape to a faraway land and meet some new friends - all from the comfort of your own home. Reading gives children the opportunity to improve their reading fluency , expand their vocabulary and learn more about the world around them. The Summer Reading Challenge gives children all this and more for free! This year, we will be rewarding ALL children who complete the challenge, with a book of their choice to keep. Just bring your certificate back to school in September to claim your prize.
Well done to those of you who have already signed up to this year's challenge. It's not too late - you can still sign up now to get reading over the summer holiday. Help on how to sign up can be found on an additional document below. Get involved and enjoy all your reading adventures!

I hope everyone is well, keeping safe and managing to access the home learning. I know that many LKS2 children are missing the additional math's activities on MyMaths, so I will be uploading additional math's lessons each week.
The below sheets will provide a progression of 5 lessons based upon the same theme and there is a link to take you to each one. Each lesson has an initial quiz, a video to watch, a worksheet to complete and a final quiz. Each Friday, I will upload the next 5 lessons so please don't whiz ahead!
If you have any questions about the additional math's lessons, please do not hesitate to ask.
