Maths learning is fun with Mathletics!

Our Year 1 to Year 6 class are enjoying a free trial of Mathletics – an online Maths platform with interactive activities, games and challenges.  Classes are exploring this in school and login details are being sent home so that you can trial it at home too.

We have successfully used Mathletics in the past for a number of years.  It can be accessed in a web-based format on a computer or in an App (make sure you download the new app if you installed it prior to June 2019)

The QR code login is a great new addition to the app, along with the really handy off-line option. Mathletics live is a fun and interactive way to help improve  students’ maths fluency and mental maths skills. Many children love competing in Live Mathletics against one another or against children across the world – all in an internet safe way.

Why Be Kind?

Today is World Kindness Day

World Kindness Day is observed annually and in 2019 is falls on 13 November.

It’s a day designated to pause and consciously reflect on times when we have been shown kindness, and think about ways in which we can treat others kindly.

What’s your favourite way to spread kindness?

It doesn’t have to be huge or showy; in fact, sometimes showing our children how little changes can make big differences is the most impactful.

Have a lovely World Kindness Day and spread smiles!

Start your day by clicking on to share a kindness story and some fun songs to sing along to.

At the end of the day, ask your children, “How were you kind today?”

Bonfire Night at Bay Bistro- Provo Primary’s 9th year!

The Flamingo class had a fun filled evening celebrating Bonfire Night at Bay Bistro. This was a wonderful end to a week’s learning in school about this true, macabre story and we would like to express our thanks to Clive Whent for hosting this event.

For a couple of children, this was their first ever bonfire night and they will have happy memories for many years to come. There were some surprise firecrackers hiding inside Clive’s Guy who towered above the Y4’s Stuart version.

The class researched previous Guy Fawkes effigies before deciding to make a life-size model of their own. Each child contributed to a part of his body or clothing and donations came from home, the garden, other teachers and even the Salvation Army!
