KS2 Parents: Has your child mentioned ‘Sumdog’?

Sumdog claims that it personalises Maths through adaptive learning and multi-player games that pupils love – and we agree!

At ACE, every child in KS2 has a Sumdog account. In fact, children are currently enjoying a ‘National Holiday Contest’, where they are competing against others from across the UK.

Teachers will have provided children with the required login details.

Please use our Maths – No Problem! vocabulary list to get the most out of your child’s Maths home learning: http://allertonceprimary.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/16/2016/11/Glossary-of-Terms-for-MNP-.pdf

COVID News – 9 December 2020

Following the Government announcement yesterday, and after careful consideration with the School’s Governing Body, it has been decided that school will close for the Christmas break a day earlier than planned, making the last day of term Thursday 17 December 2020. As many of you will be aware from your child’s class bubble collapsing, we have had a recent increase in numbers of positive tests within our school community and the aim of this earlier closure is to reduce the risk of pupils and staff having to self-isolate over Christmas and hopefully enable as many families as possible to safely enjoy the Christmas holiday as they have planned to do.

Staff will be in school on Friday 18 December to complete planning and preparation for the forthcoming term.

We look forward to welcoming back the children on Wednesday 6 January 2021.
