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!
As a follow up from Greek day, research how democracy was integrated into everyday life in Ancient Greece.
Ahead of the fiver challenge, research small enterprise ideas.
Research and create a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout. You can make your own fitness video if you like!
Get creative!
Build your own 3D model of the Parthenon, or create a Labyrinth.
Create a Greek dish of your choice.

Create your own leavers assembly script or song.
