Elvis & Elfie McMagic’s latest Antics...


While Miss Estall is still recovering from her shocking disappearance and ultimate rescue last week, the year 4's have no doubt that it was the work of a Christmas elf. But they still have many questions as to the motive behind Monday's mysterious events. They are busy writing their newspaper articles covering the bizarre story. Meanwhile, there are now 2 elves causing mischief in year 4. They are definitely cheeky, but also do not like messy classrooms! We wonder what they have in store for us over the next few days before Christmas break!

Marvelous Mathematicians In Year 4


Year 4 have been developing their fluency, reasoning and problem solving in maths, and it's been all about the 6 times tables this week! Children used their reciprocity and resilience skills to create number lines of the 3 and 6 times tables. They were able to find many patterns and connections between them. 

"I can see that every number in the 6 times tables is also in the 3's" Kyla 
"I notice that if you know your 3's all you have to do is double it to know your 6's" Florence. 
"The 3's go odd, even, odd, even, but the 6's are all even" Harry.


Then partners tried hiding numbers to see whether their partner could figure out which was missing. We also played a number of games that required critical thinking and a secure knowledge of fact families to guess the number placed on their head. 

We ended the week with some reasoning problems which got those brains boggling!

"These one make my head hurt!" exclaimed Ruben

Remember, students should be practicing their time tables each day, and can use their online times table rock stars to improve their heat mat!
