TT-Rockstars Tournament

Congratulations to our Top 3 Most Valuable Players!

 

Jacinta who answered nearly 12,000 questions correctly!

Blessed and Paige who both answered over 10,000 questions correctly!

 

It was a close call with over 252,000 questions answered correctly.
Robins did very well answering 114,836 questions correctly!

Although we didn’t win, we did all work hard working together and more importantly, everyone has shown an improvement on their multiplication recall.
We now look forward to improving our Multiplication skills further in the upcoming term.

Rock Out 2020

Well done Robins! Despite only just coming back from the Bubble Closure Robins actively took part in the Maths Week England. Since it was a very busy week we only had time to participate after school. Over 31,000 classes, and over 400,000 pupils took part and answered a total of 441.93 million questions answered correctly.

Although we didn’t win (Remember, it’s not about winning but taking part to help improve ourselves that counts!) , we did come 5166th place which meant we had beaten over 25,000 classes. Super work!

Our Top 3 Players in the competition were Tanatswa , Ava and Dylan. They have all been awarded a limited-edition TT Rockstars Guitar Keyring. Congratulations!

This half-term Y4 Robins have a whole class aim to recall their 2x 5x and 10x table within 3 seconds.

Robins are expected to play TT-Rockstars for a minimum of 10 minutes at home each week (and Maths Shed for a minimum of 10 minutes each week)

Varjak Paw

Today we have started our new class novel, Varjak Paw!

Varjak Paw is a Mesopotamian Blue kitten. He lives high up in an old house on a hill. He’s never left home, but then his grandfather tells him about the Way – a secret martial art for cats.

Now Varjak must use the Way to survive in a city full of dangerous dogs, cat gangs and, strangest of all the mysterious Vanishings.

Today we have been looking at new vocabulary, questioning the text and making predictions about what might happen in the story. Robins have discussed a range of ideas from matial art fighting, to escaping home and discovering new friends. What will happen? We will have to find out as we read through the first few chapters this week.

Can you remember the words for the following definitions?

P.S Ava would like to wish everyone the best.

Rock Out 2020

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting, this November Y4 Robins are taking part in a competition for Maths Week England. It’s called Rock Out 2020 and it’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.

For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.

All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th.

In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.

The top 6 classes will receive an Amazon gift card.

1st place: £100 gift card
2nd place: £90 gift card
3rd place: £80 gift card
4th place: £70 gift card
5th place: £60 gift card
6th place: £50 gift card

Best of luck Robins! Go visit play.ttrockstars.com !

Battle of the Bands

We may be at home but that doesn’t mean we stopped learning!

Well done! We don’t have any tournaments this week but next week Year 4 Robins will be taking part in the national Rock Out 2020 tournament.
