Times Tables Rockstars
Times tables are very important at St. Joseph's and we are always looking for new ways to improve. Year 2 have the very important job of trialling out a subscription on behalf of the whole school for the next 4 weeks. The website is Times Tables Rockstars and the web address is
Your child has been provided with a username and password which can be found in their reading record books. We would be very grateful if you could encourage your child to play this fun yet educational game at home if they have access to a computer, laptop, ipad or other tablet. Each child has been challenged to learn their 10 times tables initially, although I will be keeping an eye out for those ready to move on to their 5's and 2's. Thank you again for your continued support.
What a fantastic time we had at Fairy Forest! Year 2 had a number of challenges to tackle throughout the day...they had to build an entire fairy village complete with houses, a clock tower, a square and even a number line (it turns out fairies are not very good at counting!). The children battled on through the rain determined to complete their mission with no grumbles, we were very impressed.
For lunch we enjoyed sausage barms, toasted marshmallows and popcorn all made on the open fire by the wonderful Ranger. The children all listened very carefully to the Ranger's safety advice and were exceptionally sensible and mature.
In the afternoon the sun finally came out as we were set another challenge - to build a MASSIVE water chute - and my goodness what a massive water chute we made, it was incredible!
The children were an absolute asset to our school and they worked together as a team fantastically. What great memories we have made just 2 weeks into the new school year!
