Power Maths notes: The practice book and text book pages can be obtained directly from me via email and cannot be published on the website for copyright reasons. Just write and ask for the relevant lessons and I will email them back.

Times tables notes: Please remember that you can login to ‘Tackling Tables’ to practise your times tables. You should be able to find premade flash cards on that website. Please email me if you have forgotten your login details for the website.

Education City notes: If you go to classwork, there are three folders where you can take assessments in Maths, English and Reading. After doing the assessments, Education City will then provide you with revision work that is designed to meet your individual needs. That’s right, by doing the assessments, the activities provided will be tailor made just for you!

Lyrics

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
“May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white
