# 17.01.20

This week has been busy – as usual-  with plenty of work on division and recaps on our knowledge of shapes in maths, reciprocal reading on the poem, ‘Song of Hiawatha’ ,  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?

1. What year was Queen Victoria born?
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?
8. Who was her eldest daughter?
9. Who was her eldest son?
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!!!!
