*NEW* Numeracy- Keep going with your Learnits and I have begun a competition this week on Sumdog. The children are very keen to participate in this but please remind them that it is for fun and not to feel bad if they aren’t able to spend as much time as others on the computer.
Learnits- The Rules…
The children are asked the question on the learnits card on several occasions and if they answer correctly, within about two seconds, they can have a tick. Once they have ten ticks they can throw the learnit away. Once the envelope is empty they can have some new learnits. You can keep the envelope at home until it needs refilled.
Don’t feel you have to do all of them at once. A few at a time is sufficient.
