Happy Easter – a few ideas to keep skills sharp

Dear Parents

At the recent parent contact we spoke about the pupils having a break during the holiday but also of the importance of keeping skills sharp. I have put together some ideas for this. Any time spent reading, (use the library, internet, e-readers etc) writing – from shopping lists to diaries, counting-  a running total as you go round the supermarket, multiplication tables, judging how long it will take to walk/drive to a destination reinforces the work we have been doing in school.

These links take your child to games sites which I checked today (24.3.16) and all contain really good interactive games. Fitting one or two of these into ‘games time’ will give you child a head start on the next term.

Specific activities related to maths –

This one will really help with fractions and percentages http://www.matematicasdivertidas.com/Zonaflash/juegosflash/fractionpercentage.swf

Function machines
