‘Save Kids from Sugar’ is the latest phase of Liverpool City Councils war on sugar, which began last year when the city identified the high number of sugar cubes in children’s popular drinks. Further information can be found on the following link and via the Healthy Schools page on our website.
Well done to our team of mathematicians who won first place in the primary category of the Dragons’ Den Design a Maths Game competition. We are all so very proud of you. You were a credit to our school, your families and yourselves. Now let’s see how we can develop this wonderful new maths game further – can we take it to market?

We’re getting ready for NSPCC Number Day which will take place on Friday 3rd February. Children can wear their own clothes – hopefully with a number or pattern on and will have lots of fun taking part in maths related activities throughout the day. If you are able to, we have suggested a donation of up to £1 per family to help the NSPCC with their wonderful work. So lets have lots of mathematical fun on Friday while helping others!
MyMaths is up and running! Your child can log on with their personal log on details (which they have now all received) and complete work/challenges set by their teacher. They can also practise new skills by playing maths related games! Teachers can see where children need extra help or where they need further challenge by looking at how they perform in the set tasks/activities. This is a wonderful addition to our maths teaching and will help teachers meet individual learning needs even further.
We are encouraging our children to think about how maths is used in everyday life. We are introducing a new project called Secret Mathematician. Parents and Carers will come into their child’s classroom to talk about how they use maths in their jobs or hobbies. The children will know that someone is coming in to talk to them BUT will not know who it is. So YOUR child may be in for a big surprise! If you can spare up to half an hour anytime during the school day to talk about how you use maths in your everyday activities, then please leave your name, telephone number, the name of your child and his/her classroom at the school office or see Miss Nurse (Year 2) herself, she’s waiting to hear from YOU!
Many thanks to our families who joined us making Christmas crafts in our classes with your children. The children had a fantastic time and we have had very positive feedback from those who were able to attend. If you would like to add any further comments please do so below. We would love to hear from you.
