Staying Safe Online

Internet safety is covered at school but there have been some recent concerns in the media about children seeing distressing images or content whilst online. The following link takes you to a 2 minute video clip which reminds children about online safety and what they should do if they see any upsetting material. We hope it will help you to support them at home should they see anything inappropriate.

Easter eggs for EACH

Easter is nearly here and I am helping to collect Easter eggs for children at East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice. If you would like to help me, please bring an Easter egg to Reception by Friday March 15th and I will make sure it gets to a child at the hospice. If you prefer, you could donate £1 instead and I will use this money to buy an egg on your behalf. Let’s put a smile on the face of a child less fortunate than us at this special time of year. Thank you.

Rosamaria, Year 11

We would like to thank them for sending us these pictures to share with you.

The Mathematical Challenge 2019

On Thursday 7th February, some of our Year 10 and 11 pupils took part in the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust’s Mathematical Challenge. The girls were given 25 challenging problems to solve in 60 minutes. No calculators were allowed, only a pen, a pencil and some plain paper. Their papers have been sent off to Leeds University for marking and we look forward to receiving their results soon!

Here are 2 questions from the challenge for you to try.

  1. What is the value of (7 – 6 x (-5)) – 4 x (-3) ÷ (-2)?

a. -17      b. -11   c. 31    d. 37    e.  43

2. Two numbers, x and y, have a product which is equal to their sum. Express x in terms of y.
