Well done 5SO. You have had a great start to your time at middle school and have worked really hard to achieve new knowledge in your learning. 


Now it is time to take a break, have a rest, relax and also have fun.

Important information


Don't forget we have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays so you'll need to wear your PE kit to school on those days.


Purple reading records need to be handed in on a Monday with comments included and signed by a parent.

Reading Recommendations...


Alex Rider -

As a class we have been listening to the first book in the Alex Rider series (Stormbreaker) written by Anthony Horowitz. These books are about a 14 year old who ends up in the world of espionage much like a young James Bond. They are rich and imaginative stories which engross the reader. Anthony Horowitz has also written many children's books across a range of genres all of which are filled with ideas, vocabulary and grammar that can enrich a child's writing.


Holes -

If you have been enjoying the Louis Sacher text Holes in our English lessons then check out the sequel Small Steps as well as other books from the same other:
