Class 11

Class Teacher: Mrs O'Brien

Teaching Assistant: Miss Adams

 

Hi everyone,

Hopefully, last week you will have watched our meet and greet presentation from our Senior Leadership Team and our Upper Junior video. If you did not receive these via your email please let me know.

 

Class 11 performed a brilliant assembly on Fairness this week. They were amazing and showed great resilience. Well done. I'm really proud of all of you.

 

If you are at home isolating due to another family member's illness/positive test and are well enough to work, you need to hop over to the 'Upper Junior Remote learning' page on the class pages. It is up to date with all the lessons that we are learning in school. You also have your Book Blog book to read and blog, TTRS and Big maths tests also to complete.

Head's Award was given to Abigail a wonderful speech for School Parliament, thinking of others and for a great start to the year.

Pupil's Award was given to Emma for always having fantastic presentation and taking great pride in all of her work

Teacher's Award was given to The whole of Class 11. For their incredible performance in our class assembly.

Well done everybody.

 

We had our School Parliament hustings in class this week. There were so many children, that had never spoke in front of a large group of people before but they were brave and all spoke eloquently with passion. The class voted and they have elected Martin and Amelia as Class 11's representatives on the School Parliament.

 

From Monday 14th September, Upper Juniors will be finishing at 3:20 and will be picked up from the KS1 playground. Please read the newsletter for more information. 

 

Also, if you haven't already, I would recommend that you join St.George's Facebook and Twitter pages as these always have lots of up to date information too.

In maths we are using the column methods for the four operations. Here are some examples:

 

Addition:

Always line the digits up using place value

Don't forget to add the carry overs

Always write the addition symbol so that you don't forget your calculation

 

 

Subtraction:

Always line the digits up using place value

Always write the subtraction symbol

If you cannot take one number from the other, borrow one from the next column.

 

 

 

Multiplication:

Always line the digits up using place value

Always ADD the carried numbers

When you are multiplying by 2d number, always put the place holder '0' to help you multiply by the tens digit.

If you are multiplying by 3d number , always put two place holder '0's to help you multiply by 100.

 

 

 

Division:

If there is a remainder, carry it over to the next column

Use your times table facts to help you divide each digit

 

 

Long Division:

Long division works by dealing with the largest column 1st - in the case below the 8 (800).

How many times does 4 go into 8? ... from the 4 times table ..2 x 4 = 8. Write the 2 above the 8 and the result, 8, is written below the 8.

 

 

Work out the remainder by subtracting 8 from 8, 8-8=0 Now bring the 5 down to make 05 the next number to divide into.

 

How many times does 4 go into 5? ... from the 4 times table ..1 x 4 = 4. Write the 1 above the 5 and the result, 4, is written below the 5.

 

 

 

Work out the remainder by subtracting 4 from 5, 5-4=1 Now bring the 6 down to make 16 the next number to divide into.

 

How many times does 4 go into 16? ... from the 4 times table ..4 x 4 = 16. Write the 4 above the 6 and the result, 16, is written below the 16.

Finally, subtract 16 from 16, 16-16=0, which means that there is no remainder.

The answer is 214 with no remainder.
