Times Tables Rock Stars Challenge!

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, we are taking part in a friendly competition involving schools in England. The competition runs from 07:30 GMT Tuesday 14th November 2023 to 19:30 GMT Thursday 16th November 2023. It’s all done online via play.ttrockstars.com.

Children can play in any game mode with every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, earning themselves, their class and the school 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, subject to a daily 60-minute limit (see below). Winning classes in the school and in the competition as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.

To support player wellbeing, there is a daily time limit of 60-minutes per player. In other words, each player can earn competition points for up to 60-minutes between 07:30 GMT and 19:30 GMT on 07:30 GMT Tuesday 14th November 2023 to 19:30 GMT Thursday 16th November 2023. Once the player goes beyond 60-minutes of play on that day, they will still earn coins but will no longer earn points towards the competition.

Which Crew will be victorious? Who will rock their way to glory? Only time will tell…….

Y3/4 Family Learning

Our first family learning of the year is on Thursday 7th September at 1.45pm. Come along to help your child make their sword and helmet ready for our great Roman battle on the Friday!

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Get Involved In Celebrating Arts Week

To celebrate arts week, we would like as many people as possible to create some artwork linked to the theme of ‘connecting across generations‘. Get together with your family or friends to create a piece of artwork. It can be anything you want! You could create a family portrait, a landscape of somewhere you like to visit or just your favourite picture.

It would be great to see everyone working together to create one piece of artwork. Send any pictures or your final art work to Miss Barnett or email them to [email protected] by Monday 17th July.

Here are some examples if you need some inspiration!

Green Top celebrates King Charles’ Coronation!

Take a look at the celebrations that happened across school over the last couple of weeks to celebrate the King’s Coronation – we all had lots of fun!

An extra shout out to the KS2 choir for singing the backing vocals to the video.

Hope you all enjoy!

Class 10: Amazing ALL Block!

ALL Block is new to year 3 children and today we introduced the independent task which we tried as a whole class (this will later be done in small groups). The children all did a fantastic job and showed great independence in their learning and practiced not using their teacher for help, but to use their learning environments and a friend instead. I was so proud of them all and the work and ideas shared after the task really impressed me. Well done super stars!

National Numeracy Day – 18th May

We are looking forward to celebrating National Numeracy Day on Wednesday 18th May!

Maths is all around us and in the run up to National Numeracy Day, I would love for you to take some photos of you that link to maths! Maybe it will be a picture of you using money to pay for something in the shop, maybe it will be of how many steps you have walked in a day, or maybe it will be of you practising your maths skills!

How creative can you be finding maths around your home and in the community? Please send all of your photographs to [email protected] so that I can make a video to celebrate maths!

Also, check out the official website (link below) because there are lots of fun activities that you can do with your children!
