Noah 2019 - 2020

Welcome to class Noah!

Dear Parents/Carers,

 
We have made it to the Summer Holidays!  What a strange time it has been.  We have all been through so much, juggling time between family and work and we are sure you are looking forward to a break from the home-learning routines.
 
As we know the summer holidays can be a long 6 weeks and it would be good to keep those brains ticking over.  It would be great if you could keep up with your child's reading through 'Bug Club' or using books you might have at home.  Also the libraries have launched their Summer Reading Challenge which we know many children have enjoyed completing in the past  https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/ .
School zone. Visit our new School Zone to find Summer Reading Challenge ideas for your class. Let’s get Silly at school!

If you are looking for other activities to complete over the summer break, Power Maths Summer Home Editions are perfect for some extra practice!  There is a book per year for Yr1-6.  They are £5.99 each and you can order them by following the link below.
 
 

 We have also left the below website links for reference if you need them over the summer break.

Most of all have a safe and restful summer break and we are really excited to see all the children back in school in September.
 
Take care,
 
Mrs Hodder and Mrs Stevens
