Maths Week Newsletter Vol 3  03-04-20

Back to News Listing

Easter is coming and it has been difficult adjusting to new ways of doing things so the break will be most welcome. For us too it has been a steep learning curve getting used to a new way of working. But, it is great to see so much engagement from across the island and international schools also.

However, the Easter Holidays won't be a big change for parents.Therefore we will keep up a level of engagement over the holidays to help parents.Teachers, you might share this with parents and pupils. See Easter schedule details below

The Next Newsletter is scheduled for the 20th April, in meantime Happy Easter to our 9,000 readers.
Post-primary pupils will have work to do, but they may be interested in our daily puzzle on social media and those especially interested in maths will be interested in a lot of the daily website recommendations we issue.
