What Does Maths look like?
When we think of maths, most of us think of a 'traditional' school room with a teacher, children and books with squared paper. But this isn't all maths is. Maths is the beauty in nature, the science discovery and the magic in understanding.
Watch the short video clip below and discover how mathematics plays a role in your life. Share with us your examples of the beauty of maths.

ATTENDANCE for all is a must. Pupils who are on time and are fully engaged, make more progress. They go on to have better life choices. Step up to the mark.
TT Rockstars Competition
Each week, your child will be set timetables to practice using the TT Rockstars app.
It has been amazing to see how many children have been logging in each day to practice on TTRockstars. For those of you who may have forgotten click the image for an instruction video of how to log in.
Next week, we will begin year group TTRockstars Competitions.

What is your super power?
Last week, year 3 were learning to tell the time. I was blown away by how supportive and clear the parents were at addressing misconceptions with their children. On reflection, I realised that telling the time was something most of us would have learned at home as well as at school. So here's my question parents ... what area of maths do you think you could master with your child before we go back to school? Is it telling the time? Is it number bonds to ten? Is it sharing for division or measuring when baking?
Tweet @LornafrankMCA and I can suggest ideas and resources to support your learning.
