As adults how many times have we argued that you never use Pythagoras's theorem? Do you remember that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides? However, what we all need to know and use on a daily basis are our times tables: multiplication facts. You need 7 oranges at 30p loose, or you can buy a bag of 3 oranges for £1.50; 3x7=21 so 30p x7=£2.10 or 3x £1.50=£4.50 and you will end up with 2 spare oranges and packaging. How many Freddo frogs can I buy if I have £1 and a Freddo is 30p? It is vital for children to learn their times tables as it gives them the skills and confidence in so many other areas of Maths.

Extreme Reading

Over the summer holidays some of children (and Staff) participated in Extreme Reading. The creativity of the children at St Giles never ceases to amaze us, as you will see from their photo entries. Ellie Y1 can be seen reading a number book on a Pirate Ship in Scarborough. Literacy and Numeracy in one book, extreme and multi-tasking! Her favourite story is Little Red Riding Hood. Isabelle & Olivia Y1 were relaxing with the Flamingos by the pool, enjoying a good magazine on holiday in Majorca. Their Daddy was reading Harry Potter to them on holiday – but I don’t think their Daddy actually entered? He deserves a sticker though! Both Olivia and Isabelle’s favourite book is Harry Potter and the

Back in the swing of things!

St Giles is a diverse school and has many diverse ways of learning. This week has been no exception with Drama, Forest Craft, a Literacy Dress Up day and a Topic field trip. Monday This half term it’s the turn of the Infants to have Forest Craft sessions. Lots of fun was had doing an egg box scavenger hunt. This linked in very well with their Topic and science within their Topic. And the children used fire steels to light cotton wool tinder, even in the rain. Tuesday The whole school took part in a drama workshop that was brought to the School by The Tinderbox Performing Arts Centre. All the children enjoyed their experience in the workshop and it gave them a little taster of what to expect

And we're off!

Happy faces entered the playground at the start of the new school year and it was great to all be back together after the holidays. It was also especially nice to welcome all of our new children. We have a new reception class and lots of new faces in Class 2, 3 & 4. A big welcome to all of our old and new pupils at St Giles. At the beginning of the first day Breakfast Club was up and running. There is no need to book, just turn up between 8 - 8.30. At the end of the first day the whole school came together in Collective Worship and caught up on where we’d been and what we had done over the holidays. The value for School this half term is “Humility” and generated a wonderful discussion throug
