Take a look at these amazing little superstars . . . .
My fantastic children started their maths journey this week being taught and applying new skills as a ‘whole class’ for the first time.
This week Year 4 have been looking at different ways of representing the value of digits in numbers.
Here, Alfie and Caitlin have shown 4628 using partitioning, place value blocks and number fans.
We now know that the 4 is worth 4000, the 6 is worth 600, the 2 is 20 and the 8 is 8.
A great start to the year!
Year 2 have enjoyed working with a partner this morning to create symmetrical patterns along a vertical line of symmetry.
Year Three have been learning how to add fractions. We have used this to plan our very own fractions picnic! We had a given amount of food that we were allowed and we made this using different foods. We worked out what fraction of our whole each food was and then found different addition problems for these fractions.
Last week in Maths the children learnt about the properties of 3D shapes and sorted everyday objects e.g. a football is a sphere. Thank you to all those parents who sent in a picture of their child finding 3D shapes at home as part of their learning challenge. It’s lovely to see the children continuing their learning at home.
Year 2 have had a great music lesson this afternoon with Mrs Brian. We followed the rhythm of some familiar songs and added our own instruments by clapping our hands and tapping our cups. We really enjoyed it! Thank you Mrs Brian.
Today in year 2, we were on the hunt for treasure! Children worked in pairs to solve addition and subtraction problems then had to hunt for the answers outside. You showed some super calculating year 2! Well done to Kelsie and Brooke for being the first to finish.
This afternoon Year 2 have been sharpening up their mental arithmetic skills by playing ‘Rainbow Maths’. There were some tricky addition, subtraction, division, multiplication and fraction calculations which they solved brilliantly! Well done Year 2.
To end our Minibeast topic, this morning we have made a tally chart and then a pictogram to see which was the most and least popular minibeasts.
Year One have started their journey into the world of multiplication, rows, columns and arrays! We began by painting rows with set numbers in each row, tomorrow we count the number of columns.
