  • Multiplication Tables Check

    Published 10/06/22, by Richard Gunson

    Well, next week is the week! We will be taking the children out in small groups to complete their multiplication checks in line with new government assessment procedures.

    This weekend is the children's last chance to practise. I suggest that they use this resource as it accurately mimics the test itself:

    https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

    Go to 'adjust difficulty' and remove the 2, 5, 10 and 11 times tables as these will form only a very small part of the test itself.

  • Identity and Belonging

    Published 10/06/22, by Richard Gunson

    This week is our Values week and here in Year 4, we have been looking at identity and belonging. We have thought about how people who are from different minority communities can be unfairly 'scapegoated' for the ills in society. In the exercise on the photograph we thought about ways can be more tolerant towards people who are different to us. We came to the conclusion that education and communication are key!

  • Time

    Published 16/05/22, by Richard Gunson

    Today, we began looking at time. To help our understanding, we created our own analogue clocks. Firstly, we examined how the day is split into two 12 hour blocks, AM and PM.

    We began constructing our clocks by splitting the clock face into ‘past’ and ‘to’, adding the hours and then the minutes around the edges. Interestingly, when we get past the half hour mark, the minutes start counting backwards as we get closer to the next hour!

  • Classifying Invertebrates

    Published 04/05/22, by Richard Gunson

    Today we followed on from our learning about vertebrates and found out about all of the different types of invertebrates. Invertebrates have no spine (backbone). We were able to classify invertebrates as insects, arachnids, echinoderms, annelids, crustaceans, molluscs and protozoa based on their characteristics.
