Headteacher’s Comments

Thank you to all the parents who attended the Pupil Progress Meetings this week.  I hope you found the meetings useful.  A special thank you to Ben Oates’s nan, Norma and Kye Page’s mum, Sally for running the Book Fair before school and during the Pupil Progress Meetings.  I know Mrs Tysterman is looking forward to spending the money raised to buy more books for the school library.

Well done to all the children (and adults) who dressed up as Super Heroes last week.  We raised £138 towards Children in Need.

Maths Challenge Winners

Well done to Ozgul Celik, Rebecca Crawley, Kye Page and Oliver Sharp for winning the maths challenge.

This Term’s maths challenge

Hands on Maths

Your challenge is to find different ways that you use maths outside of school. Bring in a photo of this activity and the most interesting way will win a prize at Christmas!

You could be:

Adding up prices in the supermarket

Working out the perimeter of the living room while vacuuming

Cooking and weighing out ingredients

Can you find other ways you use MATHS outside of a MATHS LESSON?
