Ran out of books?

If you are getting to the stage where your child has run out of books. Below, please find links to several E-book libraries:

Alternatively, there are nearly 500 articles under the ‘Accelerated Reader Articles’ button that your child could choose to read and then take a quiz on.

Note: Once on the Accelerated Reader Articles section, ATOS BL stands for the child’s accelerated reader book level. Please try to ensure that children read articles that are within their school reading levels.

If it ever gets to the stage where E-books or online articles are not enough, please send across an email and we can arrange leaving some physical books for you to collect.

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

I hope you are all keeping well and managing to stay busy.

As many of you will know, for the past 5 years we have been involved in the Cornwall County Songfest, where children from all over the county take part.

Normally, a group of year 5 and 6 children would sing in a massed choir concert in Launceston during March. This year, as with most things, it is going to be a virtual event, but it does mean that all of Key Stage 2 can participate! Each week, a video will be coming out to teach the songs. It would be wonderful if the children could get involved with this and have some fun! We all know how important music is to our wellbeing and this is the perfect chance to learn some new, upbeat songs and just take a break. You could even team up (virtually) with your friends and learn together

However you decide to do it, enjoy!!

Take care and stay safe

Mrs Lane x
