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!
I have prepared a quiz (all things we have learned about already). Answers will be revealed Friday. No cheating! Visit the blog on purple mash to post your comments or write it down and mark at home.
1) A square has a perimeter of 36cm. What is the length of each of its sides?
2)Which Italian astronomer used a telescope that he made (and arguably invented) and discovered Jupiter's moons which was evidence to suggest that the Earth orbited the sun?

5) Name the coloured part of the eye.

7)Who invaded England in 1066 and ended the era of the Saxons?
8) At which Ancient Greek battle were the Persians defeated by the Athenians after sending a runner to ask the Spartans for help?
9) What is the name given to a triangle with 3 equal sides and 3 equal angles? EXTRA POINT- What would each of the angles be in this type of triangle?
10) What is the following statement an example of?

The total will be 11 marks! Good luck! Answers will be revealed on Friday.

Hello to all of 5H at home,
Thank you to all the children who have completed set work on Purple Mash. I have seen it all and left comments on the work as well. I am very proud of you all for learning at home and being responsible! I will check it as often as I can and will set new tasks. Remember, you can pick any activity on there (you do not need to just complete the tasks set).
Also, please remember to read every day and follow the homework advice sent home. You have your spelling lists at home and can always practise using them in interesting sentences (using different sentence starters and parenthesis). If you run out of arithmetic papers, you can find them online on Twinkl (which is now free to parents) or you can use the questions and make your own, changing the digits in each question.
Keep active and exercise every day (Joe Wicks goes live every morning and the videos are on Youtube if you missed it). Try to watch BBC Bitesize video clips or Horrible Histories. Why not paint a rainbow to put in your window? Play a board game or make your own one up! (I've been playing Cluedo and I won obviously)!
Keep checking the website and Purple Mash for my comments. Hope to see you all soon. I miss you all very much.
Hope you all have a fantastic day!
Show Racism the Red Card!
Today we were lucky enough to take part in a variety of activities led by Leroy Rosenoir (MBE) who is a former footballer and now is a part of the charity SRtRC. It was a very informative day and the children have learned lots and feel that they can make a difference.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
