Keeping students Thinking & Learning
We ask that you support your child in maintaining their literacy and numeracy over the holidays by making sure your child continues to read 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Find as many ways possible to have fun with maths for example, darts, and card games, problem solving games to outwit opponents, using and understanding the value of money, place values ie this is what 10,000 people at a football stadium means. This is 347 people as you step on a plane. We have also included some recommended books, websites and visits to help you fill the days, particularly wet ones.
All Hertfordshire Libraries are offering the ‘Summer Reading Challenge’ to students. Our first House Competition next term is to see how many students achieved this. A celebration assembly will be held on 13th September 2017 at 2:45pm
