How to train your dragon
by Cressida Cowell

We will explore the wonderful world of Vikings and dragons in our Literacy work and other areas of the curriculum, including art and music.
Times Tables Rockstars
Today we became the Mick Jagger and Debbie Harry's of maths when we launched a new way to help us with our times tables. Times Tables Rockstars allows children to compete as their very own rock legend in times tables games against their classmates, other classes and even other schools. We had a lot of fun 'performing' at various festivals today and the children have their usernames and passwords so they can rock out at home too!


Times tables are really important in Y4 and anything that can be done at home to help support your children's times tables learning will be extremely beneficial. As well as being a Rockstar, children can also learn their times tables using some great songs that are covers of some of their favourite chart hits. Below is a link to the song for x6 (a cover of 'Cheerleader' by OMI) but there are songs for all tables that can be found by following the links to the right of the video.


Lets get rocking our way to times tables greatness!
Maths is Fun

On Friday, we took part in a number of activities in our Maths lesson to test our understanding of everything we had learnt about 4-digit numbers so far this year. We wrote them in words, represented them using Base 10, place value counters and numicon, used place value grids, explored number lines, answered word problems and practiced our reasoning skills. We had a great time applying our new skills!

Maths is Fun

A reminder that swimming starts this week. Children will require the following:

  • Bag (big enough to carry everything)
  • Swimming costume/trunks
  • Towel
  • Goggles (optional)
