Week beginning 13th July 2020

Good morning! Last week of school before we break up for summer holidays. It has been a very different kind of year than we're used to and I want to say well done to all of you for how you have responded to what you have been asked to do. You are all superstars!

I thought it would be a nice change to do something different this week. We have our picnic on Tuesday, but YOU CHOOSE what you would like to do for the rest of the week. There are three different fun ideas for you to choose from, do one, two or all three! Or something from each, it's completely up to you.


Each year the Challenge, delivered with the support of public libraries, motivates over 700,000 children to keep reading to build their skills and confidence. This year, 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 in to all different kinds of funny books!

Every year we get more and more children joining in the summer reading challenge. Let's make this year the best one yet. 

Get rewards, play games and earn badges as you discover awesome books to read this summer!

Sign up at sillysquad.org.uk from Friday 5 June to join the Squad! Click on the picture below to find out how to join in with this years challenge.

Activity clubs

The Oaks National  Academy also offers a range of activity clubs run by their  partners, with activities like cook-alongs, arts and debating clubs. Click on the image below to browse all the available clubs. Be sure to click on the activities designed for Primary schools.  I have left this link on as there are some super clubs on this week.

Comic Art Festival

Here's a great competition to create your own comic. Little LICAF Live would like youngsters to design a factual comic! Inspired by Steve McGarry, it could be about anyone, from any walk of life. An athlete, a musician, actors from your favourite show, a family member, a historical figure or group of people like the Vikings! Think about what you have recently been studying in school to help you with ideas.
• Create a biographic comic. It can be any size, landscape or portrait, but we recommend no larger than A3.
• Use a combination of images and words – you can search ‘comic template’ online if you would like a ready made layout.
• You can use any materials and equipment you want; draw, paint, collage, hand write, type, computer aided.
• Hand your comic to your teacher before the deadline 25th September – please only write your first name on the front.

You can read all about it and see some examples by opening the document below. I look forward to seeing your creations.

Create your own country

This week you will be inventing your own country, including its name, flag and a map. Be as creative as you like! It shouldn’t just be a copy of an existing country, though you can take ideas from countries you have studied and use the geographical/ scientific knowledge you’ve gained over the last two years. It is up to you how you present your project - Slides, PowerPoint, Google document, paper booklet, pictures, maps and/or models.

You have all week to complete this project.
