Year 4 had fun with factors this morning! We were using cubes to create arrays to show factor pairs that we multiply together to give a certain product.
The children worked really well in pairs, investigating 4 numbers and then investigating if bigger numbers always have more products. Some fantastic learning Year 4, well done!
Happy new year to our Nursery supserstars and all of your families. It had been a pleasure welcoming you back in to school looking super smart and excited to learn.
Our topic this half term is ‘Nursery Rhymes’ This week we have been learning about Incy Wincy Spider. We looked closely at spiders spinning webs and carefully moved a paint covered marble around a tray to create our very own webs, sprinkled with glitter of course. Afterwards we drew around our hands and carefully cut out our handprints that look just like spiders! We think these will look amazing on our windows.
Today we have had some fantastic counting! We used the iPad to look at a photograph of a spider and how many legs they have. The children then had to count out the correct number to put on their Spider. Can anyone remember how many legs a spider has?
Please presss the spiders to see lots of pictures of our fabulous children.
We’re straight into our science topic of ‘Forces’. The children used the springy toy to find out what happens when we make the toy heavier? Does the weight affect the height that it jumps? Working in groups, we found the answer as well as learning about why scientists need to repeat their measurements in order to be accurate.
All Mrs Smith’s awesome superstars cups are washed and drying! Murphie has watched and checked each cup!

We have been learning all about Florence Nightingale this half term and we have been looking at how nursing has changed since Florence was a nurse, but also how lots of things have stayed the same. To help us, we dressed up as Florence and we answered lots of questions pretending to be her. Nurse Sarah also came in to help us find out more about nursing and she answered lots of questions that we had as well. She brought in lots of things that she uses to look after her patients to show us. We now know lots about how important Florence was and still is today.
