Maths Week 2020

We are very excited for maths week!

We will be celebrating maths and to do this we will be doing the following:

  • Each day you will be informed of a challenge you can complete at home and bring into school
  • At 3pm on Thursday (in the school hall), parents are invited to join the learning council to play maths games and look at how you can support your children with maths at home
  • Friday is NSPCC Maths day so we will be having a ‘maths’ dress up day (£1 donation) and a bun sale to raise money for the charity
  • Buns will be on sale for 50p (we will also be accepting donations of buns, cake and biscuits)

Please see the link below for dress up ideas and more information about NSPCC maths day:

Monday’s challenge is:  Who can find the oldest coin?  This needs to be a coin that you can currently spend in the UK.  Place in an envelop child’s name, the coin enclosed and date!  Good Luck!

Thanks

E SAFETY MESSAGE FOR PARENTS AND CARERS

It has been brought to my attention that there is a worrying video currently being shown at the end of YouTube videos which are aimed at children. Upon further investigation, this has been covered in the national news today also. The messages given out during these videos challenge children to do inappropriate and dangerous things but also not to tell an adult or ‘Momo’ -a scary looking character- will ‘get them’.

This is obviously a huge concern and we will be discussing e-safety tomorrow in our daily circles in all classes, however, please also safeguard your children when they are using YouTube and other social media apps by discussing actions to take if something pops up they are worried about or feel is inappropriate.

Further advice on how to restrict searches on YouTube can be found here 

However, please be aware that some of the inappropriate messages have been embedded into child friendly videos in this case and therefore even safe searches may bring this concerning message up.
