Start the challenge by playing the games https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/games
We have been really busy this week learning about area, perimeter and volume. We have also started our PSHE work about drugs and alcohol. We have started reading The Unforgotten Coat by Frank Cottrell Boyce. Stockport Academy visited us this week and explained that a lot of messages are being posted on the Facebook page that you were sent the link to. If you are working at home you do now need to be focusing on the work that Stockport Academy have sent you and take it with you to the transition day in August. Try and read some of the texts that are on the reading bingo sheet and have a look at the Michael Morpurgo books. We are also doing the Stockport Academy virtual sports day https://www.stockport-academy.org/Portals/0/Sports%20day%20poster.pdf .
