As our pupils love TTRockstars and are committed to improving their timestable knowledge and recall, those in Years 2-6 are taking part in a competition this week called Rock Out 2019 and it’s all done online via the TTRockstars website.
All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th, Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th, Friday 15th and Saturday 16th November.
For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.
In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.
Thanks for your support and good luck everyone!
Reminder to Year 3 parents
Universal free school meals are available to all pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. If you think your child may be eligible for Free School Meals now they are in Year 3, then you need to register them online as soon as possible at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk on the Free School Meals page. Alternatively, we can help you do this in school if you come into the office.
It’s the Year 3 and Year 4 inter-house times table tournament this week.
Each house will battle it out against each other on the TTRockstars website to win the top spot!
The first battles yesterday were extremely close but were finally won by Trott and Ennis.
Round 2 runs tomorrow (4th July) from 8am to 8pm. Computers will be available to pupils in class and at breaktimes and they can also play from home.
Throughout June, our Year 3 and 4 pupils have been practising their timetables and earning points for their House in an inter-house challenge.
Trott house pupils won the challenge scoring an incredible 107, 252 points! Well done to them. Ennis house came 2nd (94,092 points) followed by Whitlock (89,988 points) and Farah (40,537 points).
Congratulations too to our 3 top scoring pupils:

3rd Kyah (Y3)
The Year 3 classes are battling it out against each other this weekend and next week, Houses will take on each other in battles of the bands!
Welcome back. We hope you had a lovely half term and ready for our last half term in year 3?
To kick off our exciting half term we went to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden to watch the Royal Ballet company perform Swan Lake. The children had an excellent day and thoroughly enjoyed watching the talented dancers.
This half term in Geography we will be exploring California and learning about extreme weather.
In Maths we have been looking at fractions and are going to be moving onto multiplication and division. Please make sure you are practising your timetables at home as this will really help!
In English we will be reading a brand new book called ‘To the edge of the world’ by Julie Green. We will be creating a morale story and a newspaper report.
Please continue to read at home at least 4 times a week and practise spellings too!
Year 3 and 4 are taking part in a inter-house timetables challenge. Year 3’s will be competing on Tuesday 26th June 2018. Please encourage your child to practise at home using the website TT rock stars, https://ttrockstars.com/. The children can earn house points, Trott house are leading at the moment!
We thank you for your continued support
Year 3 team
