Pupil Report Comments

Dear Parents/Carers,


Please help your child to complete the Pupil Report Comments template below. They can choose to either type or hand write their reflections on the year. If they chose to hand write their ideas, please either scan the finished document or take a photograph. Completed templates should be sent by email to your child's teacher by Monday 20th July. This copy will be added to the teacher written report and kept for our own records. You are invited to keep your original copy as a record of your child's view of their school year and can add this to their teacher report, once received. We look forward to receiving their thoughts as they look back on 2019/2020.


(This message will appear all week but you only need to complete it once!)

Blue Peter - Six Badges of Summer

Silver Week - Try Something New

Did you complete your Purple Week badge last week? 

This week is Silver Week and your chance to try something new.

To earn your Silver Badge you need to have already earned your Blue Badge first. Then try something new such as a midnight feast, learn a new language or try some kitchen science. Check out the wall chart and Blue Peter website for some more ideas.

Follow the link to have a look on the website for tips on how you can take part. 

If you haven't already, you can download a wall chart  to keep track of your Six Badges of Summer progress.  Let us know what you're doing by uploading your pictures and videos of your creations via Seesaw.

Remember to ask an adult at home to help you apply for your badge once you have met the Silver Week Challenge.

J K Rowling's book

‘The Ickabog’ came to an end on July 10th. Did you enjoy it? JK Rowling was looking for children to illustrate the book for her. Did you come up with anything? Why not then pop a picture onto SeeSaw of your illustrations with a little explanation of what you have drawn.

Daily tasks

  • You should continue with your daily reading (20 minutes per day) 
  • Spend some time on Times Table Rock Stars 
  • If you use Lexia in school, please continue to use this at home.
  • Make sure to complete some physical activity, eg Joe Wicks, yoga or activity of your choice.
  • Listen to David Walliams reading "The Ice Monster". Catch up of chapters previously read can be found on the website. 
  • Complete 20 minutes per day on Dance Mat typing. Really focus on using the correct fingers on the correct keys. This is an invaluable skill and will help improve your speed and accuracy of typing.
  • Continue to volunteer to help with at least one task around the house, eg washing up, making your bed, making a drink for your household.


Well done to everyone who has logged on to Seesaw and uploaded some of their pieces of work. It has been great to see so many of your home learning tasks. Remember, any form of learning that you have been doing can be shared, it does not just have to be the tasks set on the class page.
