Summer holiday activity ideas

By Year 5, in Year 5 - Thursday, 9 July 2020

The summer holidays are just around the corner and we are sure that everyone is looking forward to them! If you are stuck for ideas of what to do, we have a few here that may help:

  • We have bought 2 activity books for each child in Year 5 to use throughout the summer to keep their brains ticking over. Details about collecting these have been sent out via Schoolcomms.
  • Stevenage Borough Council are also offering FREE PLAY BOXES filled with activities for children aged 5-14 years old. Details of where to collect these from are posted on our school Facebook page but make sure you're quick as they can only be collected next week.
  • The Summer Reading Challenge is still going ahead and this year the theme is The Silly Squad. Details of the challenge are on our school Facebook page and we would love to hear about achievements when we return in September. The Year 6 teachers will be awarding certificates and learning ladder jumps for those who bring in their achievements for us to celebrate.

We hope these help to fill the days. Enjoy!
