What's in the News?
CHILDREN IN NEED
The BBC Children in Need charity help young disadvantaged children and adults all across the UK. They are currently supporting 2400 projects. On Friday, our school is going to have a cake sale to donate money to the BBC Children in Need so they can encourage and help even more people across the country. Red Deer Class are also going to have an assembly based on the charity on Friday too. Look out for the posters around the school about BBC Children in Need!
The charity has been running since 1980 and have raised a tremendous £890,000,000 since then. Last year BBC Children in Need raised £60,000,000 as well. They also have a new song called Fields of Gold.

Can you share an interesting fact with us that nobody else knows? I am getting two new kittens on Saturday.
On Wednesday last week, the year 6 girls A team went to ST Helen’s school to play against them and we ended up with a great result. The final score was 4-1. St Mary’s scored 2 and St Helen’s scored 2 for us! We are now through to the next round! Another success for the girls; it has been a good season for us!!! The girls netball team are also playing a match this week.
The sports crew have been working hard to improve all the equipment; we've pumped up the football's, tidied and organised the pavilion and made new goals for the infants so they can play football soon! Please try to take more care with the equipment and put it back in the correct place.
Puzzle and competition corner:

It was a difficult decision with some amazing drawings but we have decided on our two winners as: Sophie Lee and Freya Lee. Please see their entries below. Also a special mention to Zara for entering 3 competitions, she is in the lead, check out our graph below.
The Mathemagician is back! Complete your entries and put them into the 2C4S box by the trophy cabinet. There will be a sticker for everyone who joins the competition and correct answers will get you through to the final round. There will also be a great prize for the winner.

How many legs on the bus?
There is a one-legged driver on the bus, at the first stop, 2 dogs, 18 people, 3 cats, a horse and a frog get on. At the second stop, 5 people and the frog get off, 3 giraffes, 4 spiders and a fish get on. At the last stop, 2 spiders, a giraffe and the horse get off. How many legs are on the bus? Make sure you check your answer at least 2 times!
3 lions and 3 people need to get across a crocodile-infested river. There is a raft to cross the river but only two people/creatures can go on the raft at one time. There needs to be at least 1 person/animal controlling the raft at all times (this means that a lion or person has to come back on the raft after dropping somebody off.) Unfortunately, you cannot leave more lions than people on either side of the river. How can everybody get across in the least number of trips?
Hint: Use counters or similar items to represent the lions and people. This makes it much easier.
Entries must be in by Wednesday 29th November.
Think carefully as the correct answer will gain you entry to Who Wants to be a Mathemagician?
