Maths fun!

After a busy time with Maths assessments, we played the equivalent of bananagrams but with Mathematical tiles which are a mixture of digits and operations. The children worked in pairs to create their own mathematical sentences and get rid of all their tiles. It was a super way of having some mathematical fun after the assessments!

Super Swimming!

The Year 3 and 4s swam this week for their House gala. For many, it was the first time that they had swum in front of such a large audience. There was some fantastic swimming from every single participant and there was such amazing encouragement from all of the supporters! The results of the Year 3 and 4 gala are as follows:

1st place: Tonkin’s 60 points

2nd place: Trease’s 45 points

3rd place: Hardy’s 38 points

4th place: Ball’s 33 points

These were then added onto the scores from the Year 5 and 6 gala which gave an overall result for the Inter House Swimming 2017:

1st place: Tonkin’s 126 points

2nd place: Trease’s 109 points

3rd place: Hardy’s 104 points

4th place: Ball’s 66 points

Congratulations and well done to everyone.


Subordinate Clauses

Last week 4B learnt about adding extra information to a sentence between two commas.  These we learnt were subordinate clauses.  We acted out our sentences using a football and a game almost like piggy in the middle.  4B produced some fabulous sentences using subordinate clauses . . . . now to use this skill in our writing.



STEM Week!


The Year 4s have had an amazing week so far for STEM week! They have participated so well in Puzzle Day, Pirate Maths and, especially for the Year 4s-Sublime Science. As well as fabulous workshops, the children have all been involved in many other STEM activities in lessons. A great “engineering” experience was had when constructing towers out of straws and marshmellows The winners in 4W were James, Fletcher, Ibrahim, Josiah and Marley for constructing their tower using triangles and supporting sections but well done to everyone! 4B had a similar construction project going on where they also had to think about costing! A learning experience for everyone!
