Upper 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!

There are lots of great activities and challenges on there for you to try including a deforestation poster, a great writing activity using 'The Alchemist's Letter’ and some fantastic writing challenges based on Sir Walter Raleigh’s mission across the Atlantic Ocean in search of a place called El Dorado!
Look out for some new, additional Maths activities from Oak Academy. I’ve attached information on how to access these. For Year 5, there are five lessons on Decimals and for Year 6, five lessons on Fractions. 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 lessons, so don't be tempted to complete any more than the ones I've suggested for this week!
There are also spelling lists for each year group. It is more important than ever that you keep learning and I look forward to seeing more of your home learning next week!
