 This week’s reading comprehension activity, all about Apollo 13, can be found in the "Reading Comprehension Apollo 13" document. 

Please complete the 1-star, 2-star or 3-star activity - whichever you feel is most appropriate. Our suggestion would be that Year 5 pupils try the 2-star task and Year 6 pupils complete the 3-star task.

Daily reading! Remember to read something which interests you for at least 5 minutes every day. 


Visit Brazil!

This half term we would like you to work on a project all about Brazil. All of the project information can be found by following this link or by clicking on the 'Visit Brazil Project' link which is on the right hand side of this page. Once you get onto the page, you will find a grid of ideas and some resources you can use.

We’d like you to complete at least 6 activities this half term but you can do more! If you’ve got an idea that isn’t on the grid, feel free to do that too! Be as creative as you can!

Broader curriculum: 

PE: Keep exercising with Joe Wicks!

Computing: Complete “2animate” on Purple Mash by creating animated scenes and repeating and changing images in a storyboard.
