What have we been learning about?

The end of the year…

Standard

So we have come to the end of our year in year 4, we have had lots of fun (some of which can be seen on this blog) and have many memories to share with you!

If you find yourself with some extra time over the summer holidays, feel free to share any projects you might do (this could be a presentation on a topic, finding out about a place you’re going to visit on holiday or working on something we’ve looked at this year). If you read a good book over the holidays you could also tell us about that!

Don’t forget if you’re looking for some maths challenges you can look at the puzzle 7 blog here:¬†http://7puzzleblog.com/category/medium/¬†Remember to use the levels of difficult on the side to choose questions that are not too tricky!

You could also use the very interesting BrainPOP website http://www.brainpop.co.uk/

  • Can you become experts and tell me all about a topic? I’d love to know.
  • Can you show me everything you have learned through looking on the BrainPOP site – perhaps you could use photographs to show me all the different things.
  • Share your summer adventures with me.
  • Write your own BrainPOP script on a topic, if you have the equipment you might try and make your own!

Maths Stars

Standard

As a treat in maths this week we looked at Maths stars – you can also see some interesting number patterns for the different timestables.

 

Here is a video explaining how maths stars work:

 

Here are some examples of the stars we made…I wonder if you can work out which timestables they’re for!!

Maths Challenge

Standard

Today Miss Grantham gave us the maths challenge to use the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 = 100 except instead of commas we had to put in add, take away, times or divide…

Some of us found this challenge confusing and tried to mix up the order the numbers were in but the end we managed it.

We had to try really hard using different signs and deciding whether the number needed to be larger or smaller, when we got to 108 we thought we were close!

If you don’t want to know the answer don’t scroll down! Otherwise you can see our workings! I hope they’re right.
