Hi Im rewriting our Numeracy policy does anyone have one to share ???
Thanks again for the help
The general grouchiness in this forum must be infectious. After clicking on lynseybo's post number to bring up her posting history, I felt extremely cross.
is this a wind up? (lynseybo, i mean - not you, arsinh)
do other subject threads attract this sort of dross?
ah - copied you here - so yes, it is other forums, and oh lor', i hope it's a wind-up
Have a read through this. It's for secondary but should give you an idea of what you need to do.
