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.

Be a writer!
As the children will be focusing on their SATs preparation, which will require revision at home, we will not be setting writing tasks this half term.



Be a detective!
Research the life and achievements of the artist, Paul Klee.
Research the journey of a river from source to mouth.
Research a Jewish Festival of your choice. Be sure to include: when and how it is celebrated, reason for the festival and any other interesting details.
Get creative!
Create a classification system for Pokemon.
Film a monologue as Ted, Kat or Salim, explaining how you feel. This can be from any chapter in the novel.
Make a savoury Jewish delicacy – photograph your process.
