Good Morning Leaders

Mr Grason has sent out details of this year’s summer reading challenge although it is starting earlier than normal on the 5th June. This year’s theme is Silly Squad and is all about funny books, happiness and having a laugh!

To complete the challenge you just need to read six books that make you happy – whether it be a comic, joke book, poetry, fiction or non-fiction, in digital or print format, from e-books borrowed from the library or from what you already have at home.

North Yorkshire Libraries are still closed for the moment but there are a terrific selection of children’s’ eBooks and eAudiobooks available to download for free. A library card and PIN is needed to download them but if you are not yet a member it’s easy to join – just call call 01609 533878.

It would be fantastic to see ALL Leaders part of the summer reading challenge – I know how much you all love a good giggle! 🤣

Graphic Novel – English

From your story plan, decide how many pictures you are going to need to tell your story. Remember that you might want to have a page with a full picture or, like The Arrival, you many have multiple smaller pictures on a page to tell smaller parts.

You will have the next 3 days to put together your graphic novel so take your time to build up the pictures for your story.

Function Machines – Maths

The function machines today include using decimal numbers. Can you work out the functions of the machines? Do you think this makes them harder?

Fact File Top Trumps

We have all been enjoying time outside in the wonderful weather so I thought it might be a good idea to use some of the things that we have probably seen on our travels.

Today, I would like you to make a fact file or Top Trump card about something you have seen, it may be an animal or an insect – the choice is yours. 🦋 🐛 🐞

You might want to make a few different ones to make your own Top Trump card game.
