Today in Maths we have been revising subtraction skills. We have been looking at the easiest ways to subtract numbers and what different tricks we can use. We have also looked at different problem scenarios and how we can use subtraction skills to solve them.
Addition and Multiplication
This week in Maths we have been revising addition and multiplication skills. We have looked at different ways to add and multiply numbers.
This week we have started a new unit. We have been learning how to record money in pounds and pence. We have also been learning how to convert money and add and subtract amounts. Finally we have been using this knowledge to solve problems including finding change. We have also been continuing to work hard to learn our times tables.
Developing problem solving skills
This week in Maths we have been developing our problem solving skills. We have been given different problems that we have had to solve using mathematical reasoning. We have had to think about which mathematical operation we need to use for different questions and discuss the reasons why. This week we have also looked at bar models and answered questions based on the information we have been provided with.
