On Friday 12th December many children and teachers, from all different year stages, wore a Christmas jumper to school to raise money for Save the Children with some even creating their own jumper designs. Everyone who wore a jumper made a £1 donation and we made £186. The great news is that the Government will match the donations made through fundraising. A big well done to everyone who participated on Friday, the Charity Committee are delighted! In addition, the overall winner was given 100 house points and class winners got 50 house points each.

Some Numeracy Games to practice at home, these games also link to Number Counts. They can cover a variety of levels as they can be adapted to the numbers your child is working with.
Rachels Millions: Could be done to practice place value and can be adapted for any stage your child is at i.e. if your child knows numbers to 99 practice with 2 cards if they are learning numbers within 10,000 use 5 cards. http://www.nzmaths.co.nz/rachel-s-millions
