We have had several of you ask for the solution to Monday 22nd June's Year 3 maths challenge. Mr Dixon has made a short (and badly shot) video which hopefully explains the answer.
Hopefully this makes sense now. If you want to give making a flower a go (Challenge 2) we'd love to see what you come up with. .
We challenge you to watch the whole video without singing along! Missing you all.
In order to help Sustrans and Bedford Borough Council plan for the future and to further promote active travel to families, they have produced a simple online survey for parents to fill in. It takes less than 5 minutes and the link is:
There is a prize incentive for one lucky respondent who will win a £400 bicycle to suit their child.
Fantastic home learning made as a team by a reception & year 3 brother & sister.
We’re very impressed with the stop animation skills, fantastic facts & their use of expression when narrating their facts.

Public Urged To Continue To Stay at Home To Reduce High Infection Rates in Bedford Borough
With figures showing that Bedford Borough has the highest rate of Coronavirus infection in the East of England, Bedford Borough Council is urging local people to continue to stay at home as much as possible to slow the spread of the virus and save lives.
Muriel Scott, Director of Public Health for Bedford Borough Council said “As we all know, coronavirus is highly contagious and can be spread even if someone doesn’t appear to have any symptoms.
“With lockdown easing you might think that the virus has gone away. It hasn’t; the rate of infection in Bedford Borough is the highest in the East of England.
“We are working with partners in the health sector to support the local rollout of test and trace and are calling on residents to continue the fight to slow the spread of the virus.
“Please continue to stay at home as much as possible. If you do have to go out, try to limit contact with other people, wear a face covering – particularly indoors and on public transport and keep 2 metres apart from people. Regularly washing your hands with soap and water, or using a hand sanitiser when that’s not available, remains key in slowing the spread.
“Bedford Borough has a spectacular community spirit, and we have seen so many examples of that over the recent weeks and months. We are asking everyone to continue to do their bit in helping to slow the spread of the virus and save lives.”
Anyone with symptoms, including a new persistent cough, high temperature or a change or loss of taste or smell should immediately self-isolate and arrange a test via nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 111.
Dear Parents and Carers,
I previously wrote to you on the 22nd May about how we propose to open the school whilst the risk of Covid-19 is still with us. On the basis that there is no further changes to national or local guidance, we will re-open for the pupils who have previously registered with us for the 1 June opening. If you have previously registered with us you will have received an email from Mrs Grove earlier today and do not need to do anything else to book your place. We will email you again next week with details of drop off and collection times and which classroom your child will be in. This will be with effect from Monday 15th June.
From Monday 15th June and following the Government guidance, we will run a series of small classes (called 'bubbles') across the two sites. Running such small bubbles will use a significant amount of available staff and classrooms. The demand for pupils to return to school in these bubbles is over 120 and as such, we now have very limited capacity to accommodate any more children. As things stand we have the following places available and we will then be full until September:
If you have a child that fits into one of these categories and you changed your mind from the initial 1 June opening and would now like your child to attend, please complete the following form by 10am on Monday 8th June (see button below). These remaining places will be prioritised for critical worker children and then on age (youngest first).
A risk assessment to open to this larger group of children has been submitted to the Local Authority and we will publish this on the school website when we receive their approval.
I thank you for your ongoing patience and support in these very difficult circumstances.
Mr Chris Tavener
