These packs are here to make sure children don’t forget all that they’ve learnt this year and to have some fun maths activities to keep them going over the summer!
There is lots of evidence that doing just a little bit of maths practice over the summer holidays will make it much, much easier for them to start the next term in September.
We’re setting a target for your child to complete 10 over the holiday which is only a couple of challenges a week. If children are struggling with their maths, just knowing that they can tick off a handful of challenges over the holidays will really boost their confidence and success when they move up a year. Other children may want to do more and really push themselves. Do what’s right for your child.
When they’ve done each challenge, do please date and sign it so your child knows it’s important.
As part of their history topic, learning about ‘The Stone Age’, all the children in Year 3 and 4 have worked really hard at home to produce their own artefact or project. They were all amazing and very original. Here are just a few of them. They are finishing their topic by performing a great show all about the stone age called ‘Rock Bottom’. Watch this space for photos coming soon!
For Red Nose day 2019, the School Council organised a brilliant talent show to entertain us all. There was a range of interesting acts, including: magic, gymnastics, singing, dancing and a surprise performance from the staff of ‘Baby Shark’. In the end we raised just over £400 for this very worthy cause, and felt like we had done our little bit to help others. Thanks everyone.
The children in Key Stage 1 have really enjoyed learning about Castles. As well as learning lots of interesting facts about castles, they have been busy planning, training and making amour ready for battle. In their English lessons they have written adverts for the ‘perfect knight’, instructions on how to make strong shields and a diary extract about being a knight on the battlefield.
A great topic everyone –you know so much- well done.
Children in Reception and key Stage 1 have been reading and learning all about traditional tales. At the end of the topic, they held an amazing Fairy-tale Ball. Everyone came dressed as a character from their favourite tale (even the staff) and took part in lots of fun activities, including making a mask for the ball and fairy-tale maths! Well done everyone.
All the children in Key stage 1 helped to make a giant chocolate cake for their Royal party. They are studying traditional tales and fairy tales in English and are reading a fantastic story called, “Small Knight and George and the Royal Chocolate Cake.” Now the cake has gone missing and the mystery must be solved… Good luck everyone!
Year 5 & 6 made plasticine Greek gods for our class display, after researching them.
Our new U11 table tennis team played brilliantly at Springwell School, to win the competition. In a closely fought championship, they eventually won by one point. Well done team! They are now through to the next round and we all wish them good luck.
