A massive well done to our Mathematician of the Week this week!
We have started to look at how to add using column method and using Dienes to help us to find our answers. The adults in Pearl class were super impressed by your attitude towards your learning this week. Keep it up!
Take a peek at our two Mathematicians of the Week from Week 4 and Week 5.
Our Week 4 superstar is always looking for differnt ways to complete his maths work during his independent learning time and is wowing the adults in Pearl class with all of his fantastic learning.
Our Week 5 superstar has really applied himself this week when we started to learn how to add using the Dienes. You really impressed the adults and we know that you are going to go far this year!
Well done to both of you!
Fantastic effort this week by our mathematician of the week in Pearl class. She has been able to complete her column subtraction number sentences independently using dienes and then regrouping without the dienes. Well done!
Congratulations to our Mathematician of the Week.
As you can see from his beautiful presentation, he has been able to set out his work perfectly when we have been learning about column addition this week, based on our previous work when we used the Dienes to partition 2-digit numbers into tens and ones. Fantastic work! 🙂
We have really been trying extra hard with our maths since we came back to school in September.
We have been using concrete objects to help us to be able to find our answers like Numicon and Dienes.
First we started to look at how to partition 2-digit numbers into tens and ones and answering word problems to look at the symbols greater than (>) and less than (<).
We had a go at matching numbers to Dienes to the number words.

Next we started to show our working out in our maths books. We added a two-digit number to a one-digit number and then we added 10.
After that, we added a two-digit number to a two-digit number, showing our working out with the Dienes.
Today we started to look at how to set out column method. It was tricky at first but we soon got the hang of it.
Look at how neat it is!
We are very proud of our work.
Miss Varley is very proud of our work as well! 🙂
What you could do at home to support your child:
- Complete the weekly homework that is linked to what your child has been doing at home.
- Ask your child to say how many tens and ones a two-digit number has.
- Practise adding two-digit numbers to one and two-digit numbers.
- Speak to Miss Varley if you would like more help in being able to support your child.
