Hello 5/6 Francis bloggers!
I know you all enjoyed doing some maths today through the Mathletics website.
Remember that at the moment it is only a trial. I encourage you to use the site at home whenever you can and at school whenever you are allowed.
I have added the link to Mathletics in our blog roll; that way it should be quicker for you when you want to get onto the website.
I know that some people had issues with their new passwords. We will try to work it out in class.
Otherwise, keep using the site while we can and continue developing your mathematics skills.
Let me know if there are any further issues.
Hello everyone and welcome back to Term 2.
Happy Easter to you all. I hope you had a wonderful and restful holiday and that you are ready for another busy term.
I know I had a very relaxing time, catching up with family and friends. My family and I went to Rye and the holiday break gave me an opportunity to walk along the beach and recharge my batteries. What did you do over the holidays? Do you think the holiday break was too long? I was thinking that maybe for some people holidays are a boring time and they would much rather be at school. For others, holidays are a great time just to be away from school and sleep in! Is this an issue we can discuss:
Write back and tell me what you think? Should holidays be shortened or extended? Your parents probably have other ideas! Discuss this issue with them and write back and tell me what you think and even what they think. I would love to hear your opinion on this issue.
This term is shaping up to be another very busy and exciting time. Not only will we be completing our study of Gold, but we will be going on camp. Yes, finally! I know you are all very excited about going on camp. What are you looking forward to the most about camp? Write back and tell me.
When we return from camp, we will commence our study on Space. So for all you budding astronauts, this is the topic for you. Maybe start thinking about what areas of Space you would like to research. Write back and tell me what you would like to study in this area.
Bye for now and looking forward to seeing you all at school.
