Last Friday, Year 4 went to learn even more about the Anglo Saxons at Murton Park in York. They visited an Anglo Saxon village where they could make clay lamps, they learned what day to day life would have been like and learned how warriors would have trained. Mrs Phillips was particularly pleased when they were told how money worked and it involved fractions!

 

Everything was going fine until a Mercian invaded and everyone had to rely on Family 3 to save the day! Thankfully they did and we all made it back to school safely.

Everyone had a great day. Faith even said it was the best trip she’d been on as soon as she had arrived!

Thank you to everyone who made it to our 'Learn how we learn roadshow'.  You can find the documents explaining how we do addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in the Parents section of the website. Follow Parents -> Parents Guides -> Maths to download them.

Class 7 have settled into life as year 4s really well and it's lovely to have them for another year! 

This term our topic is the Anglo Saxons. The children have been producing some lovely homework and getting very creative with their ideas!

They have written some fantastic 'beating a baddy' stories and are now working on writing amazing newspaper articles. 

Keep up the hard work Year 4!

Last week, some of the children in years three and four were able to take part in 'Able Maths Day' at Balby Central. They had the chance to meet a Robot from Robot Wars and learn about the maths involved in making one of them, including weighing, measuring and finding the area of different parts.

They had a great day and did us all proud!

 

Thank you to everyone who was able to come to our 'Learn how we learn roadshow' on Wednesday! It was lovely to see so many people and talk to some of you about the things we are doing in class.

 

For people who were unable to come (or those who might have lost them!) I have added the maths guides to the website so you can access them from home. You can find them under the 'Parents' heading on the front page and then 'Parents' Guides'. I hope you find them useful and if you have any questions then please don't hesitate to ask.

 

Happy calculating!
