6.12.21 - DARE Graduation
This week, we rehearsed and performed our DARE Graduation. Take a look at our performance below:
29.11.21 - Adding and Subtracting Fractions
In our maths lessons this week, we practised adding and subtracting fractions with both the same and different denominators. We learnt how to convert fractions to the same denominator before adding or subtracting them. We also practised converting improper fractions to mixed numbers.
22.11.21 - Finding Equivalent Fractions and Simplifying Fractions
This week, we started our unit of work on fractions. We practised finding equivalent fractions and simplifying fractions by finding the highest common multiple. We then practised converting improper fractions and mixed numbers.
15.11.21 - Square and Cube Numbers
In our maths lessons this week, we have been learning how to identify square numbers and cube numbers. Square numbers is the result when a number has been multiplied by itself. For example, 25 is a square number because it’s 5 lots of 5. Cube numbers are the result when a number has been multiplied by itself twice. For example, 8 is a cube number because 2x2x2 is 8.
8.11.21 - Factors, Multiples and Primes
In our maths lessons this week, we have been learning how to identify factors, multiples and primes. We found out that factors are numbers that divide exactly into another number. For example, the factors of 8 are: 1, 2, 4, 8. We also learned that multiples are really just extended times tables.
1.11.21 - Long Division
In our maths lessons this week, we recapped our understanding of short division, before dividing three and four digit numbers by 2-digits using long division.
11.10.21 - Short Division
In our maths lesson, we practised dividing whole numbers by a single digit. Take a look at the poster to remind you of this method:
4.10.21 - Short and Long Multiplication
In our maths lessons, we have learning how to use formal written methods to solve multiplication problems with two and three digit numbers.
27.9.21 - Column Addition and Subtraction
This week, we practised adding and subtracting numbers with more than 4-digits using the column method. We also practised using the inverse to check our answers.
20.9.21 - Rounding and Negative Numbers
In maths this week, we began by rounding whole numbers to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000. Then, we worked in small groups and used atlases to locate different countries and compare their climates. We calculated the difference between two temperatures and identified negative numbers.
13.9.21 - Place Value
This week, we have been applying our understanding of place value to identify numbers to ten thousand, one-hundred thousand, one million and ten million. We ended the week by comparing and ordering numbers.
30.8.21 - Maths Games
This week, we have enjoyed playing maths games with our friends. We revised our times tables and our understanding of place value.
