RESULTS of the Times Table Rockstars Battle

Posted on Friday 24 April 2020 by Mr Wilks

In the inaugural Year 4 vs Y5 Times Table Rock Stars battle it was very close but there was a victor…..


Well done Year 4s on a great win. Special well done to Billy in Y4 and Talha in Y5 who contributed the most points for their teams.

Mr Wain and Y5, do you want a rematch?!



Today at Moortown Primary

Posted on Friday 24 April 2020 by Mr Owen

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all well. We just wanted to share some of what we’ve been doing this week, here at MPS.

As well as doing our home learning, we’ve being gradually building up and adventure/assault course in the playground over the week. Each day it got a bit bigger and a bit fancier. Today, it became HUGE – it went all the way around the middle building!

The tunnel proved the trickiest, with quite a few of us getting stuck and looking like the Hungry Catapillar!

We also drew beautiful pictures in chalk.

And did a spot of gardening…

Stay safe everyone. We’re missing you all!

Mr Owen

Hello Y4 and Y5,

Tomorrow is BATTLE day on Times Table Rock Stars. Login anytime between 10:00am and 3:15pm on Friday to log a score. The year group with the highest score at the end of the day will be crowned the winners.

(Obviously, Year Y4 will win)

I’ve not done this before and I don’t know what it will look like at your end but it sounds fun and we all like a bit of competition! If you’re unsure of your login details, they should be in the front of your Home Learning books. If they’re not, email me or Mr Wain and we can help! My email address is [email protected]

Good luck and get practising (especially Year 4s)!

A few pics for you….

Hi all!

Here’s some excellent cooking skills being shown off. They’re an Indian sweet dish called Jalebis. Don’t they look tasty?!


I wonder if anyone can guess the member of our class being very acrobatic in front of their apple tree?!


Famous Five videos

Hi everyone,

Highlights from the week!

Posted on Friday 03 April 2020 by Mr Owen

Hi everyone!

Some children are still coming to school as their parents are key workers. We’ve been doing all the learning that teachers have been setting on homework pages, but have had plenty of time for other activities too.


We’ve painted some beautiful rainbows…

…and we’ve made creations out of clay. Aren’t they good?


We’ve been coding on Scratch and Kodu: both free-to-download programming software, which children enjoy using to build games.


Joe Wickes PE sessions have proved very hard work…

Sometimes we’re just going outside to play games instead. Anything to keep fit and healthy!


We were even lucky enough to have a visit from a teacher in our federation who is also a musician. Mrs Richardson performed for the children by singing, playing keyboard and even using a singing bowl. We kept our 2m away but we could hear it just fine! It was a lovely experience and we were all very impressed. Thanks very much Mrs Richardson for  coming in.

I love music! Are you learning an instrument at home? I’m practising my drums as often as I can. It’s a good opportunity to get better. I’ve got a guitar that I haven’t played in a while too… I might have to pick it up again! Why not take a short video of you playing something on your piano, guitar, drums or whatever other instrument you’re learning and send it to me? My email address is [email protected] If you’re happy for me to share them on our website’s news pages, please let me know. I’m sure others would love to see them too!

Construction Challenges!

One of our favourite activities has proven to be marble runs. We’ve spent quite a while planning and constructing these, with the courses our marbles are running gradually getting more and more complex. We’ve now got some working with tubes and foam tracks and it’s very satisfying.  When I can work out how to get a video on here, I’ll post one for you to see ours in action!

Do you want to try? They’re fun to make and don’t take any special equipment or materials – just a marble. You can then use anything to make the run:

  • pencils
  • books
  • boxes
  • toys
  • Lego bricks

Don’t forget to start somewhere high so gravity can help.

Home learning!
