This week’s Read Theory Challenge: complete 15 quizzes to earn 3 points for your table


This week has been busy – as usual-Β  with plenty of work on division and recaps on our knowledge of shapes in maths, reciprocal reading on the poem, ‘Song of Hiawatha’ ,Β  exploring the adaptation of foxes found in different parts of the world and learning some biographical information about Queen Victoria (more to follow next week). What can you remember from our history lesson on Wednesday?

  2. How many siblings did she have?
  3. How was she formally addressed?
  4. What year did she become queen?
  5. How old was she when she became monarch?
  6. What was her husband called?
  7. How many children did she have?

  10. Why was she called ‘The Grandmother of Europe?

We’ll have one final week on our 8 times tables before we move on with our Learn Its. Make sure you’ve nailed 6 x 8 =48 and 12 x 8 =96

Don’t forget to have a try at the ible/able game on the post below.

King of the Knowledge Points: Jack Hen with 13,233

Most Knowledge points earned this week: Courtney with 381 so 10 points for Sir Robert Peel table.

50 quizzes completed and 15 table points: Sir Robert Peel

Charles Dickens table missed out by just 10 quizzes!

Next week’s challenge: If EVERY member of your table completes 10 quizzes, you’ll earn 10 table points. Each person that completes more will earn an additional point for every further ten they do so for example, if someone completes 40 quizzes, they’ll earn an additional 3 points (because they’ve done 30 more than the original 10 target). Ready, steady, go!!!!

Straight back into it!

Last week flew past! We picked up were we left off with our division work in maths, worked super hard on our English unit on emails, started a new science topic on evolution and adaptation and launched our topic by analysing Victorian photos of some buildings in Worksop to see if we could figure out where they were.

We are moving on with our Learn Its this week and will be working on

6 x 8 = 48 and 12 x 8 = 96

If you want to give yourself a boost on your Learn Its before we complete the challenge on Friday, why not have a few games of Hit the Button and let us know how you get on?

King of the Knowledge Points: Jack Hen on 13,151

Lilymae, Jack Hen and Courtney all earned 20 points each for their new tables by completing 20 or more quizzes.

This week’s Read Theory challenge: complete 50 quizzes as a table to earn 15 points. The person earning the most knowledge points this week will earn a bonus 10 points for their table too!

Happy New Year!

A few people have blogged and asked what the new Read Theory challenge is: I’ll add signatures for Jack Hen, Hanna, Courtney and two points for each of their new tables as they’ve been on at least 15 quizzes each since we’ve broken up for the holidays. As it’s now 2020, the new challenge starting today is each person that completes 20 quizzes will earn 20 points for their table!
