Braving the weather

Thank you again to the team of volunteers (staff, parents and governors) that braved the horrible conditions on Saturday morning to help clear and tidy areas of the school grounds. The car park is now clear of leaves and surrounding areas have also been cleared. Two trailers in all were filled!!

Thank you again. You’re hard work and support is really appreciated.

Marvellous Mathematicians

This week, pupils in Rhino class have been developing strategies to calculate mentally including: bonds to 10 and add to the ones, doubles or halves and subtracting 9 by taking 10 and adding 1. After exploring and refining these techniques, pupils looked at a range of different calculations in order to apply what they had learnt. Working in their learning partners they were able to select the quickest method for each calculation. The pupils will be using these strategies again next week when, as a class, we look at problem solving.
