The Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020
The Summer Reading Challenge is an annual event delivered by public libraries across the UK.

This year, due to the impact of COVID-19, Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge 2020 will be delivered online from June to September and will celebrate funny books, happiness and laughter.

Can you read these words? Can you spell them? Can you write your own sentences using these words?
Write a setting description using adjectives (describing words). Try to make your sentences even better by using different sentence starters and conjunctions (joining words like and, because, but, so).
This half term our exciting topic is 'On Safari'. We will be learning all about safari animals so that we can write interesting reports about them. We will also be going on a trip to the West Midlands Safari Park and taking part in an African drumming workshop!

What an exciting first week back at school! We found lots of interesting clues hidden around the classroom. We worked as a team to work out what we will be learning about in our English lessons. Unicorns! We had a special visit from our very own unicorn expert, Mrs Pearce, who answered all of our questions. We will use these facts to write reports, following the Talk for Writing approach by Pie Corbett. As we learn more about natural disasters, we will apply the skills we have been using in our English lessons to write reports about volcanoes. We are looking forward to a day of exciting science investigations later on this half term!
