1. Markyate Jackanory

Reading and enjoying books is still a key focus for all the staff at Markyate Village School. This week, the teachers have all chosen their favourite book to read to you. You can use the link below to hear one of our teachers read their story, just like on Jackanory.

So, if you're sitting comfortably, we'll begin...

2. Maths fun and games

The Hertfordshire Maths Team have created some short clips of 'how to play' games to support the development of maths skills. They are both fun and educational and need very few resources. Why not have some fun?

Game 1 is 'Crooked Rules'. Children in KS2 might be familiar with this but if not, have a go!

Game 2 is 'Regroupy'. This is a great game for practising column addition.

Do you fancy a challenge over Easter? Then look no further! Below is a fun challenge for each year group which use different maths skills. If you would like a chance to revise topics, do have a look at the year groups before - they offer lots of variety. 

3. Getting out and About

Please find below the link to the National Trust website. The site has a whole range of ideas for activities to do while you are taking your daily walk or just in your back garden.


4. Book Reviews

Click on the link below to read some of the fantastic Book Reviews that Mrs Johnson has received this week. If you haven't submitted a Book Review get reading a great book and then write a review to let us know what you think of the story or, if it's a non-fiction book, what you think about the information. We'd also like to know if you would recommend the book to everyone.

So get reading and get writing!
