Well done to all our children for a fantastic start to the school year. We hope you have an enjoyable Half Term break and we’ll see you back on Monday 31st October.
No Celebration Assembly on Monday 31st October
As it is the start of a new half term there will be no Celebration Assembly – but will return on Monday 7th November!
On Monday 31st October we would like children to come in wearing a ‘Maths Accessory’ it could literally be anything… a hat, scarf, handbag, necklace, jacket – whatever they like, but should have an element of maths associated with it and must be worn with your school uniform. Please note that this is not a non-uniform day and taking part is entirely optional… Quick tip: if you’re stuck for an idea quickly Google “maths hat” for some inspiration!
We will launch Maths Week on Monday morning with a game of “Play Your Cards Right” and some work and discussion on probability and chance; there’ll be fun and the chance to win some mathematical prizes! Throughout the week there will be a range of Maths activities going on in and around school including quizzes, problem solving and a maths trail.
On Friday children will receive a visit from the Quantum Theatre Company who will be performing “The Miscalculation of Cap’n Halfinch” to the whole school.
