We really enjoyed creating picotgrams based on seawis from our story Oliver and the Seawigs.
For our maths challenge, we were creating pictograms based on our book study, 'Oliver and the Seawigs'.
We've now started using our own bar models to solve some worded problems.
Today we enjoyed some collaborative learning. Year 5 and 6 came together to start our journey into the use of bar models to aid our problem solving. Watch this space to see how we get on!
This week in maths the year 4 children in 34C have been investigating angles. We know the difference between acute, obtuse and right angles. Some of us even had chance to measure angles with a protractor!
34C have used different resources all week to help us learn about square numbers and to practise counting in 8s.
Look how well we've done!
Year 5 were treated to a mathematics masterclass by Charlie from 6p. In previous years Charlie found maths difficult but recently his confidence has begin to flourish. He felt so confident that a trip to 5M saw him commanding the classroom teaching 5M how to do short division. Charlie talked about…
Today we played fraction games on the wipe boards. WE WERE FANTASTIC!
For our Hook Day, we became evacuees during WW2. As we have learnt, it was really important for everyone in Britain to carry their gas masks with them all the time, incase of a gas attack. So, our task was to create our own gas mask boxes. Using our maths skills, we had to replicate a…
Well done to all Year 4 children pictured who attempted some Year 6 reasoning questions during lunchtime. You have worked incredibly hard with your mathematics this year and it is really paying off!
Keep it up in Year 5, high expectations for Year 6 (Mrs Harrison is lucky!).
To make sure all of us in 5R are really ready for the challenges of the Y6 maths curriculum, we tried our hand at Maths Pong this week. We worked in teams to get the ping-pong balls into the cups. Once we managed to get one in the cup, we got a prize...and a maths arithmetic question to answer! It…
To support our learning about quadrilaterals, we have made shapebots. We used rhombi, trapeziums, parallelograms, kites, squares and rectangles. Can you identify these shapes in our shapebots?
