Your Success Card should tell you what you need to work on next - if you're weaker on English, you should be revising that subject and going on English games/sites (and vice versa). If you want to improve your reading, one important thing you can do is to... read... a lot.
Having said that: remember to rest too - work, rest & play. You're not going to do well if you're exhausted and there's more to life than work, isn't there?
- Mr Brooks' maths set:
- Practise adding 3-digit prices which involve carrying (vertical method). Use a supermarket till receipt. Do ten.
- Practise solving empty box problems. Make your own by creating ten ordinary calculations with a calculator (eg 483.5+372.7=856.2), then convert them to an empty box problem (eg, 483.5+?=856.2). By the time you've done ten, you'll have forgotten what the empty box numbers were!
- Practise chunking division. Make your own by creating 2-digit x 2-digit multiplication calculations (eg, 37x68=2516), then converting to a division, rubbing out one of the 2-digit numbers (eg, 2516/37=?). Do five problems. By the time you've set up five, you'll have forgotten the rubbed out numbers.

You should describe the meal in detail, explaining what you liked or didn't like about it and explain what was particularly good or bad about it. You should also give whoever cooked the meal some advice on what they could do next time to improve the meal.
