Today, we are using our knowledge to create our own Top Trump cards so that we can play games with our partners over the last few days of school.
We are considering how many sides a shape has, as well as the number of acute, obtuse and right angles, the number of parallel lines and the numbers of lines of symmetry. Well done Year 4!
Year 4 have been thinking about money in Maths over the last few weeks. Today, we are thinking about solving division problems that may include money. We have been discussing many real life examples where we might need this skill, including splitting the bill at a restaurant or sharing the cost of a gift with friends or siblings.
We have been drawing bar models to help us visualise the problems, and then used our knowledge of times tables and their inverse division facts to help us find the answer. Some top modelling skills on show, well done Year 4!
Working in teams of 4, the children were quizzed on their knowledge of times tables, mental arithmetic and reasoning and problem solving skills. It was a great atmosphere, and the children worked positively together, showing great resilience and perseverance throughout.
A big thank you to the Year 6 judges who helped out, and to Mrs Bullock and Miss Harrison for organising the event. All of the children loved testing their maths muscles!
Well the weather might not be as sunny and warm as last week but it hasn’t stopped us enjoying our outdoor area. The maths area today was set up with measuring jugs and scales with challenges encouraging children to measure different quantities. Children made some excellent measurements – even calculating what the amount was when there was no number e.g. If the water reached between 50ml and 60ml children understood it was 55ml.
Super work children!
