John Bull Rock Factory Visit

On Thursday 6th September Pearl and Opal Classes visited the John Bull Rock Factory in Bridlington to begin their 'Scrumdiddlyumptious' topic work. Whilst there, the children were able to roll a piece of rock with their initial inside and see how the factory makes and packages fudge, biscuits and chocolate. Whilst finding out about the machinery in the factory, the children were able to taste samples of sweets and biscuits. They also made chocolate lollipops before a well-deserved visit to the play area to finish the day.

Times Tables Rock Star Launch 2018-2019

Children and staff looked rocktastic for the launch of our Times Tables Rock Star learning for 2018-2019. Miss Mellor explained how important learning times tables is and that, with lots of practice, children need to aim for instant recall of all times tables and division facts. Miss Mellor explained how the times tables rock stars programme works. To begin with, if you need more than 10 seconds to answer questions correctly, you are a rock 'wannabe'. You will climb up the ladder of rock stardom as you get quicker at answering questions accurately - so 6 seconds or less you will become a 'breakthrough artist' and at 4 seconds or less you will become a 'headliner'. Your aim is to become a 'rock star' - you will achieve this when you can answer times tables questions correctly in 3 seconds or less. If your recall becomes even quicker you can become a 'rock hero' and, finally, a 'rock god'!

Our launch event finished with a teacher challenge - five brave  (and very competitive) teachers tackled 100 instant recall questions against the clock. Miss Havercroft was victorious with a time of 1 minute 24 seconds!
