Miss Hall Rates Reading

Hi guys!

Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to be introducing you to a few books that I really liked reading when I was a child. I’ll tell you a bit about the book, why I liked it and why you should read it and then I’ll read you a section.

Let me know any feedback that you have 🙂

You can access free stories here for as long as the schools are closed:

Maths Challenge 5: Learn your 7 and 8 times tables with Adele

This used to be the trickiest times table for me!

I sometimes take shortcuts to help me with times tables. For example, to find 6x a number I first do 5x followed by adding one lot on. So to find 6 x 7 I would do:

5 x 7 = 35

Add one more lot of 7 to 35 = 42

= 6 x 7 = 42

BUT calculating 7 x 8 or 8 x 7 was always really tricky for me… Until I found this funny song a few years ago which made me and my class laugh and help us remember!

The channel has other videos too, what you think?

“Go away humans…”

Hi everyone,

A while back we read ‘Born to Run’ by Michael Morpurgo. I challenged you in sketching a greyhound using a Youtube tutorial. We didn’t have bundles of time on this, so I thought I would share the video again:

Send any sketches in to my email!
