Fed up of selection boxes and Christmas movies? Why not try these fun games to improve your mental maths. Also don't forget about Mathletics!
A great resource for developing mental calculation skills including times tables, doubling and division facts.
A fun game to play when you have a spare five minutes. It will help you to recall your number facts.
We would like to thank you for your genoristy this Christmas, we all feel really spoilt, much appreciated.

Thank you all for coming to our Christmas concert yesterday! We thought the children were perfectly behaved and sang beautifully. Here are a few photographs....
Did you know that year 3 raised £184 in the Christmas fayre? Not that we like to brag, but we did raise more than any other year group! Thank you for your support buying all of our lovely gifts. We will be spending the money on Maths resources for the children. There is still chance to guess the name of the snowman at our concert, we will be finding the winner on Thursday 21st December.
We are looking forward to seeing our parents next Tuesday (28 November) at 2:45 pm or Wednesday (29 November) at 9:00 am to show off our work from this term. We hope that you will be amazed with our knowledge and singing!
Just a reminder the children are busy learning their 4 times table and the related division facts.

Year 3 started Forest School this week with Mr Brown. They had to scavenge for bits of slate to make spears. Look at how amazing they are. And don't worry... we won't let them bring them home!
Thursday 2nd November
Welcome back to school. The children have had a great week, the Halloween disco was a success and the children were suitably scary!
We are continuing with the Stone Age for a few more weeks and we will be inviting you all in to see our work and listen to a song we have been learning - watch this space for dates.
We have started our new class reader - The Firework Maker's Daughter by Philip Pullman. If you have a copy of the book, please can your child bring it into school? It is a story about a girl called Lila and the adventures she has. Ask your child to tell you about the book and the characters so far. While on the subject of reading, we have been really pleased with the amount of reading the children have been doing at home, it is so important to develop a love of reading and we really appreciate your help and support with this.
We also started our new computing course this week, the first lesson was all about resilience. The children had to work in teams to create a tower to hold a book for 30 seconds. It was trickier than they thought.
