Big Times Tables Challenge
Our first Year 5 'Big Challenge' has been a huge success. Pupils have been learning their times tables in preparation for weekly mini-challenges in their form groups. The percentages have been totaled by our helpers and the leader board is on display in Orchard.
The weekly challenges were building up towards the final challenge the week before half term holiday and, after a very closely contested challenge (0.1% in it!), the winning class were... 5LJA! A HUGE well done to 5LJA for their hard work and to all of Year 5 for their great determination with the new challenges. These will continue in this half term to continue the momentum! 5LJA will enjoy a special treat after the holidays with ice-creams all round! Huge thanks from me to Mrs Hall and the Year 5 Team for their support.

This month marked the final of the Book Quiz which has been held monthly in Fellside Hall. The quiz allows pupils from all year groups to compete with other members of their house to answer questions relating to reading. Mrs Hughff, Beaumont’s librarian, took inspiration from the Kids’ Lit Quiz which HMS enjoys competing in every November. Her monthly quiz has been well attended all year and has proven that we have many avid readers amongst our pupils!
