Class 3 & 4 Summer homework

summer reading

Well done on a super year! We hope you have a lovely summer and take the time to relax and enjoy yourselves. Here are a selection of ideas if you find you have some spare time!

1. READING
It is VITAL that you keep reading thoughout the summer. If you can, try and read (in English) to an adult every day. It doesn´t have to be a book, it could be something from the internet, a leaflet, magazine, newspaper or even the back of a cereal packet!

2. SUMMER DIARY (Optional)
We have given each child a small book for them to keep a diary account of their summer holidays if they wish to. They could include pictures and photos too. You can also make a short video which you can show in 4th class.
