Well done to this week’s winners of our popular ‘Maths Problem Of The Week‘ activity. Darcie used her knowledge of addition and subtraction to calculate a missing value in a number sentence and Ellie was able to use her place value skills to correctly identify the missing number of tens across an interval of 400. Well done girls!
Safer Internet Day is a global campaign to promote the safe and responsible use of technology to help create a better internet. The year’s theme is ‘Inspiring change? Making a difference, managing influence and navigating change online’.
Using the internet safely and positively is a key message that we promote at Hebburn Lakes Primary School and celebrating Safer Internet Day is a great opportunity for us to re-emphasise the online safety messages we deliver throughout the year.
Our Computing Lead, Miss Begum led an assembly to promote online safety and why it is important. Later on in the week, we will be getting involved with activities aimed at helping us to understand how to keep safe online and how to make the internet better.
6 Blue Maths were exploring decimals this week by trying our hand at some classroom world records. We began by thinking about why decimals are useful in the world – many sports use tenths and hundredths of seconds to time races and some sports even require milliseconds! From trying on T-shirts in the quickest time possible to building towers and typing the alphabet on a qwerty keyboard, the children enjoyed the challenges and it helped us to use and apply decimals in real-life contexts. Well done everyone – we might need some practice with breaking some of the records, particularly Mr Campbell!
Well done to Emillie and James who were the latest winners of our maths problem of the week! Emillie was able to apply her place value knowledge to say which of two numbers was closer to another value. James used his subtracting skills to calculate the difference between two pieces of data. They were just two of the many correct entries so well done to everyone who took part.
See attached the latest from our School Council! They have been very busy and have lots to get organised.
Just a little reminder that if one of your children or a child that you care for has received an Autism diagnosis, then you can contact the EarlyBird Team and enroll onto a really informative and supportive course to help you understand more about Autism and get lots of tips and ideas from the course providers and other parents and carers.
Please see the attached flyer for the up and coming Information Meeting dates (in green) and just pop along as there is no need to book a place.
