Maths

Nursery have had a very happy and healthy start to 2020 as we opened our fruit and veg shop. The Nursery children have loved picking their fruit and vegetables and paying for them at the counter. They have enjoyed taking it in turns to be the shop keepers and the customers. What a fun way to start our new year.

In maths today, Year 4 have been investigating how to multiply three numbers together using arrays. We looked at two numbers first and then moved onto 3. Some of us even managed to simplify the arrays using our factor pairs knowledge .

Class 5B have been learning about line graphs and how to plot data accurately. They investigated how the temperature of a mug of warm juice changed by measuring it every minute for 10 minutes. They then accurately plotted their data onto a line graph.

2HL have been using geoboards to make and draw 2D shapes in maths.

November 2019: Nursery have been exploring our Numicon shapes and using them to press into our play dough and count the bumps it creates. We have worked really hard using our counting finger when counting and making sure we count slowly so we don’t miss any bumps. Well done Nursery!

Class 3MF have been using our Numicon equipment to investigate the inverse and solve missing number calculations.

2HL have been investigating multiples of 10 using manipulatives to develop their concrete understanding.

July 2019: Our times tables superstars! Congratulations to all the children who have achieved their bronze, silver or gold award this year.

July 2019: Well done to our Times Tables Champions! This year, the times table champion from each class received a specially engraved trophy to keep. These children worked hard to achieve this and should be very proud of themselves, as their teachers are of them!
