Summer Maths Challenge

Keep up the learning through summer!

Dear Parents and Carers,

 Maths skills can decline more during the summer holidays than any other subject, Harvard Graduate School of Education research suggests. With students losing up to three months of learning during the summer break, that’s almost a whole year of learning lost during their primary years.

 To prevent the summer slide we are launching a Maths Summer Challenge using a safe online maths game called j2blast from Just2easy Ltd.

 With your parental support we can:

  • Reduce the summer slide in maths
  • Get students playing games and learning maths in a safe online environment
  • Develop every student’s love of maths and ICT!
  • Every student who plays at least 10 games on j2blast Go Live! will be entered into a prize draw for several £20 Argos vouchers and our school could win money for resources
