North Lakes have rocketed to Sumdog Success once again! 30 of our mathematicians have finished in the top 50 in the Cumbria Summer Contest. Rydal Y6 Maths Group were the outright winners in Cumbria with 451 points; Elterwater Maths Group were 3rd (332pts), Bassenthwaite Maths group took 5th (305pts), Buttermere Maths Group 9th (146pts) in Cumbria! It is a wonderful achievement to have so many of our classes in the Cumbrian Top 10!
Each competitor could answer a maximum of 1000 questions each. Ethan (Y5) was 4th in Cumbria, with an amazing 929 correct, William (Y3) 5th with 926 correct, Sophie (Y6) 6th (904), Jack D 7th (886) and Katie G 10th with 875 questions correct. A fantastic effort by everyone and our Y3’s too!
HELP US BEAT THE SUMMER SLIDE! Research shows that over the summer break, children can lose over two months’ mathematical ability. Sumdog uses engaging games to encourage students, and automatically adapts to your child’s needs. To help beat this Summer Slide, we’d like you to encourage your child to play a little Sumdog each week. Sumdog will give on-screen rewards in each week your child answers 100 questions. Sumdog is available for Maths, Spelling and Grammar. Ask your child to show you today – visit your child’s class page where they can log in with their school Username and Password. Remember the School code is: north_5 Have fun!
