Summer Home Learning Menu
It’s almost the end of Term 6, whether you’ve been able to attend school at all, or whether you’ve been busy doing some learning at home. We have prepared a home learning menu for all year groups. It covers the final week of term and the summertime, suggesting ideas to keep the brain cells buzzing until September!

Transform Our World Design A Logo Competition
Mrs Hinxman's bubble wanted to share this competition with you!
The Youth Climate Summit 2020 will bring together thousands of students from across the UK and we need you to design a logo to visually identify the event. We're after something eye-catching that we can use on our website, social media and in all our publicity - the winning logo will be seen by thousands of pairs of eyes!
Ideally the logo will be round and incorporate the name YOUTH CLIMATE SUMMIT 2020, but we do not wish to restrict your creativity. Monochrome or in colour, hand drawn or designed on a computer, we want to see what you come up with!
If your interests in art and the environment overlap, submit a design before July 15th 2020.
Submissions can be emailed to email@example.com by a parent or teacher.
The two entries below were completed by year 5 pupils!
Summer Reading Challenge
We are delighted to announce the theme of the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge:
– a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter, featuring special artwork from award-winning children's author and illustrator, Laura Ellen Anderson.
The Reading Agency, who produce the scheme each year, have designed an all-new updated Summer Reading Challenge website which launched on Friday 5th June to keep children reading over the summer and support parents and carers with children already at home. This will be the only way for children to take part in the Challenge this year, due to the disruption caused by Covid-19. Because children will be taking part at a national rather than local level the library will not be able to send finishers’ certificates to schools in the autumn term for presentation.
A whole host of virtual events with guest celebrities and authors will take place on the Summer Reading Challenge Facebook page. The Challenge website will be free to access and a place for children to rate and review their books and work towards their reading goal. It will also feature video content, games, quizzes, and digital and downloadable activities to encourage children and their families to take part in the Challenge at home.
Although the library won’t be offering the usual book marks and stickers etc. we do hope that children will still participate by borrowing books from the library’s great e-book collection where they have over 1400 titles for children to choose from: https://eastsussexlibrary.overdrive.com/library/kids
They also have information about how to borrow e-books and e-audio books on their website: https://www.eastsussex.gov.uk/libraries/online/ebooks-audiobooks/ebooks/
We hope that you enjoy the challenge and we look forward to hearing about the books you have read!
We're here to help!
If you find yourself facing something difficult at home and need someone to talk to, teachers are in school on weekdays. The office phone number is 01424 421397. Alternatively, we would encourage you to contact Childline on 0800 1111 or see their website https://www.childline.org.uk/.

Each story is about 4 pages long and the theme of hope is explored through a large range of topics including 'Animals', 'Kindness', 'True Stories' and 'Fairytales'.
We're really pleased that our subscription to First News have granted us permission to upload their weekly newspaper during the school closure! Feel free to download to read offline or view in a browser. Each week is packed with the latest news from around the world with dedicated sections to 'home news', 'sports' and 'entertainment'. There are also puzzles (like crosswords) and competitions. We will upload new issues weekly!
NewsWise have published a helpful document 'Wellbeing and the News'. It features advice and activities for families to work through about how to respond to news reports.
The National Literacy Trust
The National Literacy Trust have developed a literacy learning hub for parents, to give support during this time. This content will be regularly updated.
Organised into three age groups, you will find ideas and guidance for simple activities that will engage your children at home, while also supporting their reading, writing and language development.
You can access lots of reading and writing resources: audio books, videos, competitions and reading challenges. Every resource is available for free, although to access some you may need to create a free account.
