Mathletics has landed! The new maths computer programme has been launched across school this week and everyone should have brought their own personal log in details and passwords home. 

Mathletics is a super way to make maths fun and supports children in their learning, using a range of different activites. It covers all topics in maths and is set at the level to which different children are working at.

With every correct answer to a question, you get a point. This then allows you to purchase things from the avatar shop because you have your very own avatar, which you can keep changing!

Live Mathletics allows you to go head to head with children from all over the country .... and the world! WOW!

Teachers and parents can track progress and things you need to work on.

There are videos to help and there are so many fun games to practise things like times tables, number bonds and much, much more!

Certificates can be printed at home to celebrate your success. 


Be a Mathlete ...... be a Mathletics champion!

Our New Makaton Song

We are learning a new song in Makaton and here is the video to so you can practise at home. It's a song we all know and love at Wistow!

A Million Dreams (The Greatest Showman) - Makaton Sign Language

A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman - performed in Makaton sign language.



Wistow School Councillors have launched an amazing idea across school and are asking us all to collect used postage stamps. They will then send them the the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) where they can use them to raise funds that help in all sorts of ways. We are collecting British and overseas stamps ... we already have some from Australia!

So if you can save your stamps and send them into school they will help us to support a worthwhile cause.


What should we be reading?

Choosing what to read is so important. You as the reader want to be enjoying what you are reading.

Books are so important in helping us develop and learn new things. We have put together some books for different age groups that you may like to read. Remember, you don't have to go out and buy them, we may have them in the school library or our local library. Take a look!
