Do you want to take part in the Maths Challenges over the summer? Do you want your children to keep busy over the holidays practising their maths skills?

We are running two maths challenges over the summer - see the details and links below. 

  1. Real-life Maths Challenges 

Click on the year group you have just finished and bring in as many of the answers as possible on a sheet of paper. You can do one question or all the questions! There will be some prizes for children who return their work in September. 




       2. TT Rockstars 
There will be prizes awarded to children who achieve the most points on TT Rockstars over the summer holidays. Miss Armitage will check the results in September. 
Times tables are essential to learn as they form the foundations of many units of maths. Will you be a winner? 

Remember, you can use TT Rockstars on mobiles, ipads, computers or any electrical device now for free! 

Have a lovely holiday and keep those maths skills ticking over!

Spider plant investigation

In year 5 we have been learning about the asexual and the sexual reproduction of plants. We have planted a spider plant and we are observing how it grows taking measurements and recording our findings. We will be hopefully be propagating it's clones once it begins to grow runners. We are hoping that that year 5 will have their own spider plant before the Summer holiday.

Have you started your Readathon journey?


We are very excited to be taking part in Read for Good's Readathon, a wonderful and time-tested way of motivating children to read for pleasure.

 

Pupils choose whatever they like to read - from comics to classics, magazines to blogs - and the money they raise in sponsorship helps to provide books for schools, as well as a regular supply of brand new books and storyteller visits to our local major children's hospital and hospitals all over the UK. Plus, we will receive 20% of the money raised to buy books for our school - it's amazing!

You can sponsor your child online  
Click here to donate for the Readathon
