First Ever Focus Friday!

NSPCCFocus Fridays will give our children an opportunity to concentrate on one particular curriculum area for a whole day, and will be run twice every term, beginning on Friday 7th February, when we will be celebrating our very  first Focus Friday looking at maths!

 

Number Day 2020To raise money for the NSPCC World Number Day, all children at school will be taking part in hands-on maths activities, designed to inspire a new generation of mathematicians.

 

Times Tables Rock StarsMaths Focus Friday will also mark the launch of Times Tables Rock Stars, an interactive and enjoyable programme designed to improve our students fluency with times tables.

 

Not only does Times Tables Rock Stars allow the children to learn their times tables, it encourages them to play by taking on the role of their very own rock star!!!

 

As they progress in their fluency at recalling times tables facts, the students take their very own rock star on a journey to becoming a rock hero.

 

50p

To raise money for the NSPCC, students and staff can make a donation of 50p and dress up for the day as their rock star!!.  

             

Throughout the day, KS2 will also be running Times Table Rock Stars competitions with prizes on offer to the rock hero of each class!

 Cup cake         

There will also be a cake sale after school in front of the school office  to raise money for the NSPCC. All of the lovely treats on offer will have been baked by our students who will be practising their mathematical skills by reading scales and scaling ratios.

 

Once you receive your child's log on details, simply visit ttrockstars.com to login and get playing!
