Volcano Wow Day

To launch our new topic, Year 3/4 have had a Wow day today. Lab Rascals came in to do a science workshop with us making dry ice volcanoes. The children were amazed at the results and have made some fantastic memories. What a fabulous day at school!

Why isn’t there a volcano in Hull?

Our new topic is ‘Why isn’t there a volcano in Hull?’ Over the Christmas holidays we have immersed our pod into a volcanic mountain. The children have loved exploring their new learning environment and we can’t wait to start learning about the new topic!

Maths in Year 3

Year 3 have been learning about multiplication and division over the last few weeks in Maths. They have learned to count in 3s, 4s and 8s and learned to apply this knowledge when working out multiplication and division calculations.

Here they are investigating the pattern with numbers that can be divided by 3:

 

 

Remembrance

The season of Remembrance may be over but this stunning display will ensure that we never forget. As part of a project with the Humber Education Trust, the year 3 children created various pieces of art work, including the beautiful ‘sea of poppies’ made from recycled plastic bottles. They also exchanged a piece of art work with the other HET schools. In a solemn Remembrance service, they placed poppies in the shape of the number 100 to commemorate 100 years since the end of WWI.  The service was followed by the whole school forming a giant poppy in the playground.

Tree Planting Fun

Last week we worked with Woodland Trust to plant trees on our school field. Everyone got to plant their own tree as part of the project and some of our parents even joined in with the fun too! This will eventually create our own forest! It was a bit muddy but we had lots of fun!

Children in Need Fun

The children in Y3/4 had a fabulous day raising money for Children in Need. We came to school in Non-Uniform and brought a donation. In the morning, we did Pudsey themed Maths and English lessons. In the afternoon, we got to on a bouncy castle, have a disco and eat a bun! It was lots of fun raising money for a good cause!

TT Rockstars Club

Year 3/4 love Times Table Rockstars! We have had some amazing battles today in our lunchtime club today! The boys won this week, can the girls win next week?

Representations in Maths

Year 3 have been using Base 10 to help them understand the concept of column addition and subtraction. It has really helped us to understand the relationship between hundreds, tens and ones.

Fitbit Fun!

Year 3/4 love our new Fitbit Challenge and are so excited to wear our class Fitbit! Each week the classes in KS2 are challenged to see who can do the most steps each day. We have had lots of fun seeing how many steps we can get each day and can’t wait to beat our top score!
