Another epic battle took place last week with Y4 taking on the mighty Y5! But again, those Y4s proved unbeatable with an incredible 14,977 vs 12,976.
Most useful players in Y4 were: Mia, Isla and Lyla, with Annabelle, Tilly and Zach highly commended. In Y5, most useful players were Imogen, Finlay H and Henry, with Scarlett, Oliver W and Emily C. highly commended.
As you’ve probably already seen on the website, on Tuesday there will be a Gloucestershire-wide TTRS tournament, pitching all the schools in the region against each other, so I’m not setting any class tournaments for next week! It starts Tuesday 12th and ends Thursday 14th so in that time try to accumulate as many points as you can – the class with the highest number of correct scores per pupil will win. Let’s help Leonard Stanley to be up there on the leaderboard – I know you can do it! Best of luck – Mrs C.
Also – an update on TTRS!
‘Wow – what an epic battle this week as Y4 took on the mighty Y5! And the winners are..
YEAR 4!!!! Y4 scored a superb 18,121 against Y5’s 17,649.
Top players for Y4 were all girls (come on boys – let’s see your efforts!) with Mia, Annabelle and Isla taking on the title of most useful players with Lilie, Lyla and Tilly highly commended!
For Y5, Henry, Finlay H. and Imogen were most useful players, with Emily C., Oliver W and Scarlett highly commended.
I’ve set up a new battle which will start at 0830 hours on Monday – it was a close run thing last week..who will be victorious next week??! Good luck to everyone taking part (so lovely to see how many of you are entering our weekly challenge!) Mrs C.’

I have sent home with the children a pack of English and Maths activities if you would like to practise some of the skills we have learnt. If your child finds an activity tricky, please do not worry as we will be revisiting these in the coming months.
If you would like to work on alternative activities that is completely fine and encouraged.
