This will be the final week for on line learning at home. We are planning for a full return to school in September in line with Government guidance.  Please continue to check the school website regularly for updates and details about returning in September. Thank you for your engagement with the on line learning during these difficult months.

Here is a message from our local library;

 

Dear all

 

I am delighted to announce that we have just launched a new Summer Reading Challenge website especially for children in Cheshire West and Chester. It includes:

 

  • Details of exclusive free online events, which include an acting session from Carly Thoms (who played Miss Honey in “Matilda the Musical” in Manchester recently), story time with Mama G, how to do “silly face” animations with Mako Create, dancing with Cheshire Dance, Noodle Performance Arts, the professional storyteller John Kirk reading The Twits and “how to be an awesome storyteller” with Simon Adepetun.
  • Competitions: each of which have the prize of a £20 book token: short silly story competition, sharing a happy memory of lockdown, drawing something silly and writing a book recommendation.
  • Soon to come will be videos featuring crafts and jokes.
  • There’s a great video introducing the website which is ideal to show for classes and remote school assemblies at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsD4vnBvcHk&feature=emb_logo.

 

And of course there’s also the national Silly Squad website where children can join to read books and get online rewards for doing so at www.sillysquad.org.uk.

 

We’re still working hard to get our libraries open as soon as possible. Storyhouse is reopening this Saturday, followed by Ellesmere Port, Neston, Northwich and Winsford libraries on the 13 July with revised opening hours. A further five libraries will be reviewed two weeks later.  The Summer Reading Challenge will be almost entirely online this year.

 

Children, as long as they have their parents/guardians’ permission, can join the library service online via this link. We have a wide and expanding range of ebooks available via this link.

The Big Question for the Summer Term is...

 

Are we alone? 

Topic

 

Children will soar into the vast depths of space as they learn about the planets, famous astronauts and rocket designs to name a few. 

Some say that Orion's Belt is a big 'waist' of space... terrible joke - 3 stars only

Religious Education

 

Children will become ‘detectives’ as they explore the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. They will scrutinise historical accounts in order to reach their own conclusions. 

Literacy 

 

We will focus on explanation texts based around space this half term. When studying fictional stories, we will explore ways that figurative language influences reader perceptions. 

Maths

 

We will apply our understanding of Roman numerals in different problem-solving contexts.
