Congrats everyone- This week's public leaderboards are up! We have successfully managed to jump up to 78th place on the Hustle Board- That's fantastic! Last week we were just outside the public leaderboard range at 104th place...Out of 1001 schools nationwide ( and counting as more schools join in ) this is fantastic news!
Keep playing Khan Academy at home- even five minutes every day can really help you win an individual prize or win fantastic prizes for your school.
Encourage your brothers , sisters, cousins and friends in our school to join. If they come to me with a note from their parents I can sign them up and add them to our class list.
Or if they sign up at home choose Ms Magner as their coach.
The more children in the school that take part - the better chance we have of winning a prize!
Keep 'Hustling' folks! Let's try climb further up that board next week.

This week, we had a very special treat as we had a mystery teacher put us through our paces as we tried to solve a tricky maths brainteaser! We listened carefully and tried to work out the puzzle using the small whiteboards. We had great fun! Here's some photos of us at work .
Well done to Anna- She was our tables champion today! Keep learning your tables boys and girls! This week we are learning all about division
This week we are learning all about fractions- so far , we have learned that a fraction is a tiny 'bit, 'piece' , 'section' or 'segment' of something. This of your pizza from the Take Away - how would you divide it up evenly so everyone gets the same amount of pizza? That's right you'd use fractions!

Today we started using 'Scratch' . This is a very useful way of teaching the children to use maths in a fun way. The children can use Scratch to create simple projects involving computer codes. We can't wait to try it again next Tuesday !
Last week , we were learning all about the 'Time'. Time is something we use every day and it can be a little tricky to grasp. We use 'Time' when we want to know when our favourite television programme is starting or maybe when we want to know when our football match is etc.
