The Big Times Tables Challenge
We are very excited to launch our first 'BIG TIMES TABLES CHALLENGE' for our Year 5 pupils. From Monday, every form class in Year 5 will spend one of their form times completing mini times table challenges. Every week the percentage of correct answers in the class will be collected. Over the course of four weeks, pupils will be able to practise their times tables in their maths group and in form time. This builds us up to the final 'Big Challenge!' where pupils will really have to show off their gained knowledge and recall of multiplication facts.
The winning form class will receive a special GOLDEN TIME treat!

Year 8 STEM Day - 19 April 2016
On Tuesday 19 April 2016, our Year 8 pupils will engage in a day of exciting STEM activities. These sessions will be led by visiting staff from Newcastle University and by our own specialist teaching staff. Sessions will include: ‘Mystery Maths’ (a problem solving development session) and Computer Science as well as exciting Maths, Design Technology and Science activities.
This cross-curricular day will immerse our Year 8 pupils in the world of STEM and will hopefully generate excitement and discussion that will translate into classroom learning over the coming half term.
We hope you agree that this day will provide a fantastic learning experience and we look forward to sharing feedback from the day!

Sumdog Maths Competition Update
Pupils are engaging extremely well with the Sumdog Maths Contest. As it stands, three of our classes are occupying 8th, 9th and 10th place on the County Leaderboard! Let's keep playing and get HMS to the top!
It has been great to hear so many pupils loving the contest. Many have said 'you don't even realise you're learning!'.
One of our pupils is currently 14th on the Individual Pupil Leaderboard... I'll let the suspense build for that!
