Week#3 (19)

Are you getting your newsletter?

So that the details here in the prompt are kept to the minimum, lots of news etc will now be put into the newsletter which is sent every Sunday. The addressee is ‘Julia Skinner’ so do make sure you add it to your white list so you don’t miss anything.


The showcase entries for WEEK#1 are:

GST in Yr.6 at Garstang CE primary, Garstang, UK

Alexia in Yr.6 at Moonee Ponds School, Australia

Do send me more nominations so that we can have a separate showcase page!

Latest prompt

Back to a puzzle question this week! The prompt is:

The form will close at 23.45 UK time on 29th September

Week #2 (19)

How was your first week?

I was so excited to see so many entries for our first week. Do let me know how it went & we can share it with everyone. How did you approach the first prompt? What did your pupils think?

Did you get the newsletter?

I will send a newsletter out sometime each Sunday. Please check you have received it as the new database may not have you all linked. I will be using the newsletter more this year for special notices so it is really important you read it. Let me know if you do not receive it on 16th September.


Here are the nominations for the last Special Prompt which ran over August for those classes in the southern hemisphere. Congratulations to:

Pratyush in Year. 6 at Papatoetoe West School, Auckland, New Zealand
