Sharing Mental Maths Games in Scratch 

Year 5 have been learning some advanced coding skills in computing lessons. Using Scratch, they have all created mental maths games to test their knowledge of the times tables! The games have been programmed to input player names, generate random questions and check for accuracy of answers. Some children have even been able to keep track of scores and lives within their games!

Last week they welcomed Year 3 children into the ICT suite to test out their games and to give feedback (see the photos above). It proved to be a fantastic shared learning experience that was enjoyed by all. 

West Yorkshire Cricket Finals

Drax Cup – West Yorkshire finals

Today, our Year 3/4 cricket team participated in the West Yorkshire finals of the Drax cup.

We played 4 games in the group stages. We won our first game due to a tremendous batting performance and some wonderful catches in the field. The second game was narrowly lost. Our third match was tied on runs and wickets so went to a bowl-off. We lost the bowl off in sudden-death – how unlucky. However, we quickly got over this agonizing defeat to win our final match – again thanks to a strong fielding performance and a superb batting performance by our final pair of James and Huey.

We finished 2nd out of 3 teams in our group (just the bowl-off away from qualifying for the semi finals and a possible chance to play at Headingley).

What a season it has been for these players. Each and everyone of our players have improved their cricketing ability greatly in recent months. We have a very strong squad and the future for cricket at Hothfield looks very bright indeed.

Also, the sportsmanship and mutual respect shown by all three teams in our group was an absolute joy to behold. It is this that makes these completions worthwhile. Each team tried their very hardest to win, but were the first to congratulate the opposition if they were beaten.

Mr. Bolland is a very proud Hothfielder this evening.

Well done Natalia, Grace, Archie, Rio, Jack, Evan, Huey, James, Owen and Lennon.
