A quick note on the snow – we will put a note on our website if the snow is bad and we have to close. We aim not to! Assume we are open unless informed otherwise. Remember to wear good shoes to school– you may wish to wear boots or wellies and then change into school shoes.

2017 FOSM Christmas Fayre

The Christmas Fayre has begun! Come on over and enjoy the festive fun. 11am-2pm.

Pudsey’s Cake Sale!

A huge thank you to everyone who brought in cakes, purchased cakes, or donated to our Christmas tombola. We’ll let you know the amount raised as soon as we have counted it!

Book Fair Grand Total

THANK YOU!

We have raised over £1800 on books and stationery at our Autumn Term Book Fair. Thank you for all the incredible support. The school will receive a smaller percentage of free books because of this. A special thank you also to the amazing Year 6’s who gave up their time to run the fair – you were all fantastic! The teachers are very much looking forward to choosing new books for the school libraries and Book Club book shelves. 

Mathematics Support

Useful Mathematics Resource

Mental calculation and a good understanding of place value provide excellent foundations for making good progress in Mathematics.

Topmarks‘ is a brilliant website with access to learn online through safe, fun and engaging games and activities. There are a huge selection of games aimed at 3-11 year olds and most are also tablet friendly.

The maths games available help children to understand the place value of numbers, to count and order numbers, to recall addition and subtraction facts and also to learn those all-important times tables facts! HitTheButton is a great example.

You can search for games by topic or age and most games have varying levels of difficulty to support your child as they make progress.

We hope that this is a useful resource for both parents and children – have fun practising mathematics!
