We are successfully using the Maths No Problem scheme of work throughout the school beginning in year 1. This scheme has been developed using the principles of how maths is so successfully taught in Singapore. There are some excellent videos that explain some of the thinking and methods. If you prefer to read about it, have a look under the ‘Our Approach’ tab on the Maths No Problem website.
The latest newsletter and menu have been sent out – look here.
Our new Change for Life club has proved very popular, with regular attendees and lots of healthy activity and food tasting. We have all tried new foods: zesty lemons, spicy sweet chilli sauce, seeded wholemeal crackers, hearty root vegetables and lots more! We have all discovered at least one new likeable taste and texture.
We have also tried out different ways of exercising and used some unexpected equipment!
Congratulations to everyone who completed Swanage Library’s Summer Reading Challenge.
Year 4 will be taking part in the world’s biggest coffee morning, in support of Macmillan Cancer Support, on Tuesday 11 October from 9 – 10am in the school hall. We would welcome donations of cakes, labelled and delivered to the school hall on the morning of 11 October!
There will be tea and coffee available for a donation towards the charity, along with a variety of games and a raffle that year 4 will be organising. It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible, and it will give you the chance to have a natter with friends.
We thought that children in Key Stage 2 (years 3-6) might like the opportunity to buy a cake at break time. They will be able to do this with their class teacher, if they bring in some change for the charity. Cakes will range from 30p – £1.
Year 4 look forward to seeing you!
Congratulations to our children who passed their level 3 Bikeability training this morning. Your instructor said it was one of the best sessions he’d had, both for the standard of riding and for the view!
