KS2 Summer Concert : Tuesday 19.07.2022 (18:00 -19:00) Queen's College


It's half-term so make the most of your time to relax, read, help family and to make sure that you are in good habits -- exercising, sleeping well and waking up at a good time.





You've been reading for years and years and now, before your final half-term, it's time to share the... TOP THREE BOOKS TO READ BEFORE YOU LEAVE PRIMARY SCHOOL?


Think back through the years!  You might want to refer to class texts like Pig Heart Boy, Kensuke's Kingdom and Goodnight Mr Tom.  Or perhaps it's magazines or comics you've read -- should every primary school child be reading The BeanoThe Phoenix or National Geographic for Kids?  What about poems?  What about fact books? 


You can come up with a piece of writing, a poem, a performance, a piece of art or a song to celebrate the three essential books to read.... 




See how far you can get through these problem solving challenges:


OR practise the basics with some Numeracy Ninjas:






Remember, we're still looking to create a Virtual Fete stall.  We have some incredible projects on the go and some already handed in including a fashion guide and a recipe book that's cooking.  Keep up the super work and why not see if you can collaborate online with a friend (with adult permission)?
