Wednesday 22nd July 10 Things to do this Summer

HELLO EVERYONE  A HUGE THANK YOU I would like to express my THANKS and PRIDE in the work and commitment EVERY family has shown across the last 4 months.

Free Fun Online Timestables Resource

Hi all, I was doing a little research into times tables resources online and I came across this one. It's called 'Maths Chase' and looks to be a fun way to learn and to test out our times tables knowledge. In year 3 and year 4 there is a big focus on getting to grips with times tables, not just knowing them but to be able to recall them quickly. To support this over the summer months would be of...
