We've Made It!

The final week of school and home-learning is here. We are all so proud of you all for how you have taken all of the unusual happenings of this year in your stride. It's very strange not being able to see you all to say goodbye for the Summer but I can't wait to welcome you all back in September. 

End of year poem...

I think you’re very special,

And I just wanted you to know,

This year has been a strange one,

I’m so sad to see you go!

We’ve done so much together,

We’ve laughed and smiled and learned,

After such an exciting journey,

You have a lot to learn ahead,

But there is one thing you should know:

The thing that makes you wonderful,

And will shine through all you do,

Is just to be yourself,

And be proud that you are you!

 

I hope you have managed to keep your sunflowers alive so far!  Please finish filling on your sunflower diary and keep looking after it.  After the flower dries out you can keep some of the seeds to plant next year and let the birds eat the rest!

This week, and if you are ever bored during the holidays, you might like to try some of the science experiments below:

We grew rainbows in school and it was great fun! I hope you have fun too.

(For grown ups: if you would like to try the lava lamp experiment an Alka Seltzer tablet works well!)

Reflections...

You might like to have a think back over this year and reflect on some of the things that you have enjoyed, learnt and discovered. 

The Summer Reading Challenge is an annual event aimed at 4 – 11 year olds. Children are encouraged to read six (or more) books of their choice during the summer holidays with collectable incentives and rewards, plus a certificate for every child who completes the Challenge. Last year, in Northumberland almost 2000 children took part in Space Chase.

This year, with the disruption caused by Covid-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and public libraries, the all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge is launching earlier than usual to keep children reading over the summer and support parents and carers with children already at home. The theme for the Challenge and associated marketing campaign is

 “Silly Squad” – a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter, featuring bespoke artwork from award-winning children's author and illustrator, Laura Ellen Anderson.

 A whole host of virtual events with guest celebrities and authors is taking place on the Summer Reading Challenge Facebook page on Friday 5 June to mark the launch of the digital Challenge. The Challenge website  www.sillysquad.org.uk is free to access and a place for children to rate and review their books and work towards their reading goal. It features video content, games, quizzes, and digital and downloadable activities to incentivise and encourage children and their families to take part in the Challenge at home.

Northumberland Libraries are joining the Reading Agency in celebrating the digital start of the Challenge and will be launching the challenge locally on Saturday 11th July. Look out for more details of digital events with Liz Million and Circurama on our Northumberland Libraries website www.mylibrary.co.uk and social media pages.

“How sensible to have a Silly theme. We've all had to deal with serious and scary issues, so it's time for a bit of fun. There are so many comical and crazy children's books to cheer us all up. Let's get reading and get happy!” - Jacqueline Wilson, Summer Reading Challenge Ambassador
