As explained in the letter from Mrs Sweeney, below are a range of links which you can use to support your child's continued learning during the Summer Holiday.
Some classes have been using Epic Books during school closures. Parents can sign up for a 30 day free trial of Epic Books. Although this is an American site, it provides a broad selection of texts covering a range of genres and text types.
Oxford Owl provide a free ebook library matched to book bands as well as a range of other resources and activities to support with phonics, English and maths.

The challenge will end late September. Taking part is easy and free, visit the Summer Reading Challenge.
You can choose any books you like to count towards your Summer Reading Challenge.

Toolkit #5 was released today! It's a brilliant one focussing on the amazing portraits of two artists, Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald, and is led by professional, published illustrator, Esther Coombs.
The final toolkit is released next week and rather than focussing on a particular artist, this one looks at music and sound. We will be composing a soundtrack to the VR 360 film with musician and composer, Paul Richards.
If you are unable to take part in these last couple of toolkits, the toolkits will be available throughout the summer holidays!
While we normally love the great outdoors, The Scouts have pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas to keep children entertained on rainy days. Keep children learning new skills and having fun (and avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors.
You can get more ideas of things to do delivered straight to your inbox.
