Hillside Herald 

Hillside Primary Virtual School Weekly Newsletter

Dear Parents/Carers,

Well it has been another busy week at Hillside with the launch of Learning by Questions for children
from Year1 to Year6. All children should have received a link to this platform so that they could
take part in the activity. We will be sending out these links every Wednesday so please do log on
and access this exciting new learning opportunity.
Over the summer, Year5 will be taking part in a holiday Maths catch-up programme. Maths-Whizz
is a virtual Maths 'Tutor' who will assess your child's Maths level, set appropriate challenges for
them to complete online, record their progress and adjust the level of the challenges according to
how well your child has answered the questions they have been set.
We would like ALL Year 5 pupils to use Maths-Whizz in this very special 10-week pilot scheme, in
order to prepare them for Year 6 in September as best as we can. Please could you therefore let the
school office know as soon as possible if your Year 5 child does NOT have access to an electronic
device and the internet at home, if you have not already done so, so we can try to help as many
pupils as possible going forward.
As always, I hope you are all well and have a lovely weekend.
Best Wishes
Mrs Jewell
