Message from Mrs Kingston We have noticed increasing levels of playground chat about the game Fortnite— Battle Royale which is a PEGI 12+ gun battle game which requires players to work as a team. The main risks to children are interacting with strangers and also making costly in-app purchases. If your child is talking about Fortnite, please follow this link to find out more about it. https:// fortnite-battle-royal-parents-guide-keepkids-safe-gaming/

Maths help

Maths Year 1


At Holy Cross we follow the block planning from the maths hub. The teaching and learning of maths follows 3 core areas. These areas include concrete, using practical, hands on objects to support mathematical understanding.Pictorial, using drawings or jottings to support understanding and finally abstract,where the mathematical understanding is shown mentally. The new curriculum is very demanding and requires children to show and develop good fluency, reasoning and problem solving with all objectives.
