LAST SUMMER WE ACHIEVED THE GOLD KITEMARK!
We are very excited and proud to have achieved the nationally awarded Gold Kitemark for all we do in PE and sport at Todwick. This is a huge achievement for school and shows the fantastic talent, enthusiasm and commitment we have to PE and sport. The Gold Kitemark is the highest award a school can achieve. Well done to all who have been involved in extra-curricular clubs, sporting teams, festivals and PE lessons, and a HUGE thank you to Miss Abbott who puts her heart and soul into leading PE at our school! It is a great way to celebrate everything we do in sport!
Numeracy Passports are a strategy for improving children's mental maths skills
Each child will be given a passport with a series of targets set out in continents. These targets get progressively more challenging through the school. The passports track progression in basic number skills. The children will develop instant recall skills in all the objectives – they should not be taking time to work out the answer to each question, they need to know it instantly.
All children will start at their attainment level and progress through the passports at their own pace. The aim is to complete the passports at the latest by Year 6. At first, it may seem that the work they are doing is too easy but we want to check how fast all the children are at each objective.
The children will be practising mental maths skills in school and will be tested regularly. But in order to progress quickly and to develop instant recall, your child will need your help.
How to help at home
We would ask that you spend 10 minutes each day practising your child’s passport skills with them. This could be walking to school, in the car, at teatime, before bed – it doesn’t need to be a sit down, formal time. For most of the skills, you could try the same procedures:
eg number bonds to 10, you say 6, your child says 4
eg 3 x times table, you say 3, your child says 9
eg 4+3=? ?+4=7 3+?=7
Go on Mathletics www.mathletics.co.uk or other number computer games. Mathletics also supports other areas of maths such as shape, space, measure and data handling so please encourage your child to keep using it.
There are currently 9 passports:
Thank you for all your support.

We have celebrated National Science and Engineering Week by taking two teams of scientists to Wales High School for an inter- primary science competition. We had to build pasta towers; test acids and alkalis; make electromagnets and investigate chromatography. Although we didn't win the competition, we had an awesome time and the Y6 team won the 'Best Teamwork' Award!
