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!
See our note below about Children In Need next week, as organised by School Council!
Book Fair is coming back to St. Mark’s!
Each year, we run two Book Fairs, which are always so brilliantly supported by you all. Not only do the children have the opportunity to buy new and exciting books, every purchase also allows us to buy new books for our school. The very popular stationery stalls will also be open.
Wednesday 15th, Thursday 16th and Friday 17th November.
12.30-1.00 and 3.30-4.00
What do you need to do?
- Browse the leaflet that came home earlier in the week with your children to choose some new books and cut out any coupons that you would like to use.
- Place any money that is to be spent independently by your children at lunchtime, into a clearly named envelope with the amount inside specified too. They can bring this to school with them next week on one of the days that the Book Fair is open.
Thank you for your continued support.
