Maths Family Game Night – Tuesday 19th Feb

Dear Parent,

We are excited to invite you to attend an evening of fun and learning to celebrate numeracy and maths. The event will be run by our Cluster Numeracy Co-ordinator, Mrs Kyle Smith. Please join us for a Family Maths Games Night on Tuesday, 19th February from 6.30 – 7.30pm.

You will have the opportunity to participate in some maths activities with your child/children that will demonstrate ways to further encourage and support their learning at home. This will be an informal event where you can drop in and choose the activities you want to play. As this event is open to all stages, please consider walking to the school. If travelling by car, please be considerate of the neighbouring residents.

Your oldest child has been given a  return slip today. To help us organise the event, I would appreciate if you could complete and return the slip in your oldest child’s bagbelow by Tuesday 22nd January.

Kind regards,

Karen McDowall, Principal Teacher

Masterclass 3 – Creative Construction

          

Yesterday we had our last Creative Construction masterclass and we linked it to our bridges challenge. The success criteria was:

The model must:

  • Span a gap of 50 cm.
  • Be aesthetically pleasing.
  • Be able to hold a calculator.

Everyone had fun making their bridges but some of them didn’t last until the end! Here are the bridges that did survive and meet the criteria.
