19th December

Hi Maths

I don’t think there has ever been a longer Autumn term – 1st September until 22nd December – and you’re all still here!

If you didn’t catch the new Primary bulletin earlier in the week, please do have a look on the Primary tab. Our colleagues had the official opening of their building this week, which is all very exciting!

For this last bulletin of the year, I would like to thank everyone of you for your hard work this term. There have been a lot of changes, and not too many complaints (well, not to my face, anyway!) and it has been great to see years 7 and 8 engaging in the lessons so well, even though some of the tasks are pretty challenging.

If you have finished the schemes for this half term and have some lessons to spare, there are some Christmas lessons here.  The page has been updated since I sent you the link earlier in the week. I had forgotten Speedy Santa, which is a Fermi style problem solving lesson. I’ve also added this link to Desmos for a drawing a Christmas tree activity, which is really good. (Click on the picture to go the the Desmos page)


Adam from Wollaton has also sent a folder full of goodies to share, which is now linked on the page.

The first four lessons for next term’s year 8 are already up, and the first four for year 7 will definitely be uploaded this weekend, so that you don’t have to spend your holiday doing too much planning.

Have a wonderful holiday everyone – have a good rest and try not to think about work.

I’ll see you all nice and refreshed and ready to go in January.

Merry Christmas!
