Also, be sure to practise this week's spellings (below).





Super effort on yesterday's challenging maths puzzles.  There are a few people weren't sure on -- check the video resource centre ( 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?

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.
