Mr Long's Maths

WHOLE SCHOOL REMINDER: Please can you drop any school books in to the school office ASAP. Many were sent home with home learning packs, but we are still missing lots of important school resources. Thank you :)

 

W/c 13th July 2020

Dear All,
I am so excited about seeing you all this Friday!

Before this Friday, you'll be glad to know I've set you some more maths! No slacking now!  You are doing so well with the Y7 White Rose maths. This week topic is factors and the links to the videos and worksheets are below. 

You'll also find a couple of fun Murder Mysteries to solve at the bottom of the page (there will be some print outs outside the main office from Monday morning). You have also been set daily challenges to complete in Mathletics and there is a new times tables competition to get involved in.

Below are the final rankings for the The LMPS Times Tables competition. In terms of total points scored, the winning class was Nightingale. However, if we judge the winner by the average points scored per per player then Kestrel won.  Which one do you think is the fairer method?  



Here are the top 1o players. It was a mighty battle between the Cobb brothers for the top 2 spots!

As always, please send me any work you wish to share. The address is mrlong@lmpsdorset.co.uk
