Friday 2 November

Your homework this week is online using Abacus. Remember to ask Mr Watson if you forget your password.

Please note I set 3 different abilities like in class- Bronze, Silver and Gold. You do not need to play all 3 games- but you can if you want too!


The writing competition details are still below. Thank you to those children who have already submitted their work.


Rotary International is promoting a NATIONAL YOUNG WRITER COMPETITION

This well established and successful competition is open to all school and college communities, home educated pupils and any other young people’s community organisations.


To produce a written or typed story in prose entitled ‘My Inspiration’ The written entry could be fiction or non-fiction, a story or a poem as long as the piece relates to the theme.


An A4 page or up to 500 hundred words is a suggested suitable submission.


Entries should be the originals and unfortunately they cannot be returned after the competition, therefore we recommend you scan/photocopy your work, so that you have a copy to keep.

There are 3 age groups (ages on 31st August 2018):

  • Junior 7 - 10 years
  • Intermediate 11 - 13 years
