Today Year 4 enjoyed an afternoon with the ‘Freshwater Theatre Company’.
We went back in time to Ancient Greece and took part in a number of games all based around different aspects of Ancient Greece. We mimed actions for Greek gods, learnt about their many inventions and reinacted a famous Greek myth.
Year 4 Robins continued with their Hopscotch work today during Computing with Mr Baddhan. They today learned the function of the repeat block to use blocks more than once instead of adding them separately.
Mr Baddhan showed the children an easy way to create equilateral shapes like a square using a repeat block.
The following is an example of a square shape in Hopscotch.
This week we’re holding a maths themed week in school. It will be full of fun and exciting activities, competitions and games for all the children (and families) at Bells Farm. We will be sending home a family quiz, where all the answers will be numbers, will be holding daily competitions or challenges and will even be involving the school kitchen where each day’s menu will have a maths ‘theme’!
On Friday we are hoping you will all get involved by sending your child into school with a maths themed hat……it could be a baseball cap with numbers or a bonnet with shapes, a spiral hat with number lines or sequences…..we know how inventive you all are. We will send out some more ideas at the start of the week, but perhaps you can get your thinking caps on now (maths ones of course) in readiness.
We know the children at Bells Farm all enjoy and get a lot of learning from our themed weeks, and this maths week will be no exception. We want to show the children that maths IS fun and can be creative and enjoyable in many different ways.
