We are nearing the end of our project now, but there is still lots to do. We will talk through the remaining tasks (below), then it will be up to you to decide what order you want/need to complete them in.
There will also be some work/learning to do in the garden – crews will be rotated throughout the morning.
The Full Governing Body were in a buoyant mood tonight following on from this evenings ‘Learning Festival’. The governors extend their thanks to everyone that gave their time to share their experience of Learning & Leadership.
Other matters discussed include:
On Friday, y5 had the huge task of calculating how many decking boards we needed to purchase for our ‘Courtyard Garden’ project. Even though the maths was very complicated, most of us got to grips with at least with one aspect of the maths.
Over the weekend, I double-checked our maths and ordered the decking. However, you’ll see from the image below that my maths doesn’t agree with Wickes’!
In ‘Word Problem’ language, the question might sound like this:
Mr Flint orders 20x 1.8m decking boards @ £3.49 each and 16x 2.4m decking boards @ £4.49 each. The decking boards are on a ‘Buy 4 get 1 free’ offer. Mr Flint calculates that this will cost £136.23 (£106.23 + £30 delivery). Wickes calculate that the total price is £140.23. Which is the correct price?

We are selling lego set 10659 on eBay to raise money for the pond project. Full details can be found on our eBay listing. If you or anyone that you know likes Lego – please bid generously to help us raise even more £££ for us to buy more equipment/plants for the pond area.
We have already raised £146.95 (thank you for supoorting our cake sale and Summer Fair toy stall) and have had some paint and plants donated from local businesses.
Can you help us get to our £200 target? You can view (and hopefully bid on) our eBay listing here.

Montell Douglas is all of those things and she’s coming to Maple Cross JMI tomorrow to inspire, motivate and mentor us. She’ll be doing a special assembly at 1.15pm (parents, if you’re free, you’d be more than welcome) where i’m sure she’ll tell us more about her journey and how she can help us.
After carefully considering each parties manifestos in class, years 3,4,5,6 and some staff have exercised their democratic right to vote in our Maple Cross JMI General Election. Here are the results:
It will be interesting to see how this compares to the actual result.
If the votes for Liberal Democrats and SNP were combined, can anyone calculate what percentage of the vote they recieved?
How many more votes did the Conservative Party get compared to UKIP?
What mathematical questions can you create based on our results?
