We would suggest that the boys spend time practicing their tables.
www.theschoolhub.ie/sample.php is a nice way of doing this.



Give the boys opportunity to practice using money, telling time, mental addition and subtraction during other daily activities. There are loads of games to reinforce these topics on Topmarks website.

We hope everyone is safe and well and that we’ll see you all again soon!
Mrs Bartley and Mrs Bouchier
