WB 16.12.19 - In our maths lessons this week, we worked together to solve puzzles and problems in order to solve the mystery of the missing Christmas cake.
WB 09.12.19 - We consolidated our previous learning this week and we completed a range of mental maths activities and developed our problem-solving and reasoning skills to answer multi-step problems.
WB 02.12.19 - This week, we continued with our perimeter and area unit. We calculated the area of rectangles and compound shapes by applying known multiplication facts.
WB 25.11.19 - This week, we have started our new unit: Perimeter and Area. We began the week by measuring the perimeter of rectangles by using 1cm squared paper. We then moved onto measuring rectilinear shapes with a ruler before using known measurements of composite shapes to find the missing sides.
WB 18.11.19 - For the final week of our multiplication and division block, we learnt how to multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1,000 using a place value grid. We discussed the meaning of 0 as a place holder and solved problems in a context using these skills.
WB 11.11.19 - As we continue with our multiplication and division block, we discussed how we can use factors to identify prime numbers. We then used multiplication squares to help us identify all prime numbers up to 100 on a hundred square. Take a look at some photographs from our lesson below:
WB 04.11.19 - This week, we began our new unit: multiplication and division. We started the week by discussing what multiples were. We then learnt how to identify factors. We used counters to make arrays to help us visualise factors. Finally, we compared factors for given numbers and identified the common factors. Take a look at some of our arrays below:
WB 14.10.19 - There was a sense of mischief in our maths lessons this week as we celebrated 'World Maths Day'. When we arrived at school, we noticed that someone had created a mess in the classroom. We worked together in small groups to solve some maths problems to find the clues, which eventually led us to the culrpit!
WB 07.10.19 - We began our new unit of work on statistics this week and we have identified the features of a line graph before interpreting the data. We have been practising how to solve comparison, sum and difference questions about data presented on a line graph. Finally, we collected our own class data and drew our own graphs to represent this.
WB 30.09.19 - This week, we applied our understanding of addition and subtraction to solve multi-step problems. On Wednesday, we worked in groups to sort different word problems into categories by reading the question, identifying the key vocabulary and deciding on the operation needed to solve them.
WB 23.09.19 - In our maths lessons this week, we started our new unit: addition and subtraction. We focused on using column method to solve addition and subtraction problems, followed by using rounding to solve word problems involving estimations and approximations.
WB 16.09.19 - We focused on counting forwards and backwards through 0 during our maths lessons this week. We used a number line to identify negative numbers and then we played a game with our talk partners to practise this skill. Take a look at some pictures from our lesson below:
WB 09.09.19 - This week, we have been securing our understanding of place value and have been identifying numbers to one million. As well as this, we have been continuing to practise rounding numbers with up to 6-digits. To secure this skill, we played rounding games with our partners and challenged each other to round to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000. Take a look below:
WB 02.09.19 - In our Maths lessons this week, we have been learning how to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000. We have explored Roman Numerals and used place value grids to recognise the value of different digits in 4-digit numbers.
