Timestables Practise

The children generally are pretty good at timestables – however, it is an age-related expectation that your children know all tables up to 12 x 12, this includes the corresponding division facts.

E.g 8 x 6 = 48 and 48 ÷ 6 = 8

There are some fabulous resources out there to help – apps for Iphone and android such as Maths Rockx and there are also websites such as https://www.timestables.co.uk/

There is no shortcut! The ONLY way to learn timestables is repetition so PLEASE encourage them to practise as often as possible.

Family Assembly – Habitats

Year 4 presented, in pairs, the work they had prepared on different habitats – they had created a short presentation using IT and through pictures. They also showed examples of the homeworks they had made at home.
They also sang a revised version of “What Can We Do With the Drunken Sailor” – with words that they had written themselves.
It was lovely to see so many parents to support their children
.

Finding Dory – Visit to The Deep – Hull, 11 September 2017

Year 4 enjoyed their visit to The Deep in Hull, yesterday. We explored the wonderful world of the Oceans, learning about the different ocean habitats and the creatures that live there. Some favourites were the penguins, the sharks and the stingray. The children particularly enjoyed being in the tunnel which took them under the deepest part of the tank and gave us a perfect view of the stingray’s underbelly (and many other varieties of fish!).

The Thackray Medical Museum

Last week year 4 visited the Thackray Medical Museum in Leeds. The children were lucky enough to take part in two different workshops based around life as a Tudor.

This proved to be the perfect opening to our new topic on Henry VIII. The children came backed bursting with knowledge and hungry to find out more.

 

Well done Year 4.

Self Sustainable Siddal

Eco council had an amazing afternoon yesterday digging up and cooking their potatoes. The children grew two types of potatoes; rocket and regional. The children also had the pleasure of picking some of the peapods that were ready.

After cooking the potatoes with Mrs. Harper our Eco warriors were given the opportunity to taste them and then kindly brought them around the school to allow other adults and children to sample their home grown produce.

Using modelling to write

Last week the children used a description of the witch from ‘The lost happy endings’ to create a  model. They then used role on the wall to write descriptive words of the horrid old hag before turning these descriptions into a paragraph.

Rainforest fun

 

Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their work on the rainforest. They have spent the last half term leaning about the different layers of the rainforest, the animals that live there and the devastating effects that deforestation has  on the world.

Eco Council Vegetable planting and picking

Eco council have been very busy over the past few months growing and caring for our vegetable patch. The children brought in seeds kindly donated from home and we successful grew radish, lettuce and peas. Our carrots and potatoes are still growing and we cannot wait to taste them too.

Thank you to all the parents that donated seeds and remember if you have any unused gardening equipment at home, eco council would be happy to give it a home.

Year 4 trip to York

Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to ‘The Dig’ in York yesterday. We took part in two workshops, where we learnt all about life as a Viking and how their different weapons were made and used. We then had the opportunity to become archaeologists and had a go at unearthing different towns and artefacts from the past.

Keep an eye on our page for more photos from our amazing trip.
