Thank you for the amazing cookie homework, it was fascinating and delicious! 

There will be no new work set this week, but keep reading so you can quiz when you return to school.

Reading:  

In school we regularly talk to your child about their reading and monitor their engagement using our AR system which helps us to ensure that your children are reading regularly at home as well as at school. Please help your child by encouraging them to read quality books and by making time to discuss any unfamiliar words they come across with you. 

Mathletics: Please login to the system to access the tasks set and use this to revise any areas in Maths that your child feels they need extra support with. This week we are offering a housepoint bonus to the class with the most certificates so get revising and win housepoints while you study.

Studies have consistently  proved that children who engage regularly with Mathletics do significantly better in their assessments so please take advantage of this wonderful tool. If you encourage your child to complete more tasks and they gain a certificate these will be awarded in our Key Stage Assembly on Thursdays.

On reviewing our attainment on Mathletics I have reset any activities which have had low scores so that you can have another go. Please then try to use Mathletics to support you in any areas of Maths that you feel you need extra help with.

Times Table challenge: Brilliant news, those of us who now know our times tables have a new challenge! Each week we will all start from mild and work our way up applying our times tables knowledge to answer increasingly complex fractions and percentage problems.Remember we are always looking for the easy ways to calculate the questions, so remember to look for quick methods and to simplify larger numbers and readjust. To start with it will be tough but each time it will get easier and quicker as we grow our minds and become more confident and experienced. Good Luck everyone!
