MATHS

 

Super effort on yesterday's challenging maths puzzles.  There are a few people weren't sure on -- check the video resource centre (https://parkfield-primary-school.primarysite.media/) for a quick guide to some of the tricky ones.  Remember to look at the answers as well to compare:

Please drop us an email if there are specific questions you would like us to go through and we can go into these a bit more deeply.

 

In the meantime, try the Friday challenge.  How far through these challenges can you get?

CELEBRATIONS

 

So much super poetry is coming in -- enjoy this from JC:

 

The Door

 

Go and open the door.

Maybe there is a path leading to your dreams.

Maybe there is a key that can unlock your mind.

Maybe there is a box of nightmares waiting to be discovered.

 

Go and open the door.

Maybe there is a world that is upside down.

Maybe there is a scroll prepared to be told.

Maybe there is a doughnut…… Mmm doughnut.

 

Beyond the green door –

Trees grow taller every minute.

 

Beyond the blue door –

Waterfalls heavily plummet to their death.

 

Beyond the red door –

Anger and frustration swells.

 

 

Also, check out these two Pixlr masterpieces from Alien_girl_xox:

 

 

 

...And a beautiful, painted door from Dreamerofspirits:
