This year’s Summer Reading Challenge will run from June to September, offering children and families the chance to take part online and receive rewards for their reading.
Silly Squad, the Summer Reading Challenge 2020, 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 different kinds of funny books!
To take part your child will need to sign up and create a profile at sillysquad.org.uk. They can then set their own challenge to read any amounts of books during this time. They can read anything that makes them happy – comics, joke books, poetry, fiction or non-fiction; in digital or print format: from e-book lending through the public library service or from what they already have at home.
Each time they finish a book, they add it to their profile and write a review. Along the way they will be rewarded with activities and incentives such as badges, games and videos. They will also receive a downloadable certificate once they’ve completed the challenge!
Happy Birthday to Ruby-Sharne and Cristiano who celebrated their 9th birthday in May. We hope you had a lovely day :)

As a class, we put together the buildings we sketched and created in James Rizzi’s style to make a class collage. Have a look how it turned out. I was so impressed with how you all worked together and shared ideas about where each building should go.
In art we have been exploring the work of American artist James Rizzi. We have learnt that he was a pop artist and used bold, bright colours with animated faces in his paintings. We went out into the playground to have a go at sketching the buildings we could see.
Well done to all the children in 4C who showed resilience and determination to stand in front of everyone in their colour team in Upper School to say why they wanted to be a Vice Captain. I am so proud of you all! Here our colour team vice captains for this term.
We started off the year by looking at Our Borough - our first topic. We had a relaxing afternoon using the water colours to paint key landmarks from around the borough. Which ones do you recognise?
