Maths- next test

Planning for a presentation on a famous Stuart. The children have been given sheets explaining what is to be done. The presentations need to be ready by November 20th, or sooner if they want.

Spelling will be every Friday.

Well done to everybody for a big improvement in the speed test. The class average is now 37/40. The last test on 7s is Friday 10th then it is on to the 8s. We have practised division this week so hopefully more children will get better mark in the last column.

November 23rd Sony factory visit. Leave at 9 back by 1 packed lunch needed. 1 more parent helper needed.

December 6th children get to interview an Osprey player in school time. Unfortunately, no parent help needed.

Homework: Spelling tests (Testa and Test b) and speed tests on multiplication tables every Friday. An example of a speed test is linked here speed test6s (word document) and speed test6s (pdf).
