The Create a Community Challenge is a competition for all Cambridgeshire and Peterborough infant, junior and primary schools, where children need to work together to complete a project. This community project combines many areas of the curriculum, from Maths to Art and PSHE to Geography!
Your challenge is to create a town of your own design. Throughout the project you will need to carry out research, make decisions and produce a community map or model of your town. Try to be as creative as you can - building your town out of whatever you have available (junk models, Lego, play-doh - anything you like), or making a map using pens and paper or using masking tap or chalks on the ground.
Although the competition is open for schools to enter, families can take part at home too. If you and your family would like to make a community, you can send it to your child's school. The school can then choose their favourite entry and submit it to the competition.
The final date for entries is Tuesday 30th June 2020 and the chosen winning entry will win an iPad for their school. To submit your entry, email email@example.com

When you have finished reading a book, you could write a book review. Email it to your teacher using the email address on the top of your Home Learning class page and they will choose the best ones to post on Amazon's review section!
You could write reviews for any of the books you have read independently, as a whole class or in English this year.
Reviews on Amazon help author's sales so they'd be really grateful and you have a wide audience for your writing!
