Year 6 Leopards

Welcome to the Year 6 Leopards!

 

 

Join our Summer Reading Challenge!

 

From the 5th of June, we are encouraging our wonderful SMSJ children to complete the summer reading challenge with Blackburn Central Library!

 

This is a fantastic opportunity to encourage thousands of children to read for pleasure and to keep their skills sharp whilst learning from home. 

 

All you need to do is follow the link below and sign up! The library has recently relaxed the joining rules, so that children who don’t already have a library card can access the eBook and eAudio resources too!

 

https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/

 

Once you are all signed up, set your own challenge to read any number of books! Every time you finish a book, add it to your profile and write a review.

 

You will be rewarded with activities and incentives along the way, such as online badges, games and videos!

 

Once your challenge is complete, you will receive a downloadable certificate!

 

We can’t wait to see what you have been reading!

Home Learning

Good morning Leopards!  Below are your tasks for today.  Please make sure that you complete them in either your Home Learning or CGP books (depending on the task) by the end of the day; then you will be ready for tomorrow's tasks.  If you have filled your Home Learning book, then complete your tasks on any spare paper that you have at home and keep these in the back of your book.  Keep trying your best and remember that you have your CGP revision guides at home to support you as well.  Before you begin, make sure that you have had your breakfast and keep washing your hands as often as you can.

 

If you need to contact me, please use the contact form at the bottom.  However, I won't be able to reply to any messages sent from school email accounts e.g. a big brother/sister's school email address.  I can only reply to a parent's email address.
