Reading is fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. Reading develops your brain, provides a window into the world around you and gives you a greater chance to succeed.

Please support your child read by hearing them at least four times a week and completing their Reading Record. Thank you!

Project
We would like to invite the children to take part in a half termly project which they should undertake in addition to their reading and learning their spellings and maths facts.

The children should choose a minimum of one task per section or more if they wish!

Children will be awarded a certificate upon the completion of their project.

Write a letter to Mr Denchfield to explain to him that we use far too much electricity in school. What could we do to save electricity?
Imagine that we went on a school trip to see the pyramids. Write a recount telling me what we saw/did/heard/felt on our trip.
Imagine that you are the first person to discover electricity. Write a diary entry telling us what happened.
Be a detective!
