Good morning!


Now before we start our work, it's important to warm our brains up. For Begum's Beasts, I want you guys practising your 3x tables today so please click here. I will give you a shoutout on our maths page tomorrow if you email me your score.


For fire dragons- Please click here and pick a times table of your choice. I will give you a shoutout on our maths page tomorrow if you email me your score.


For top banaynays, please try the Countdown mind boggler below. Now, I don't expect you to get the answer spot on, but whoever gets the closest in the class gets a shoutout tomorrow on the class page! I will also reveal the method that gets the correct answer. A tip: Don't be afraid to add numbers together before multiplying and also don't be afraid to use division to help you find the answer...
