We had a visit from Emily and her team from Explore Learning.
They brought some maths challenges with them and it was up to us to help them!
We had to follow clues left by the pirates in order to find the treasure. We learnt about clockwise and anticlockwise turns in order to help us find the treasure.
By working together as a team, we helped each other and found all of the treasure.
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!
Just because it is our KS1 SATs week, it doesn’t mean that we can’t make our learning fun. Today we played a maths game that challenged our understanding of maths problems in numerals and words.
All around the classroom were different maths clues that we had to solve with a partner. It was fun working with a partner to solve the clues!
Sometimes we could do the problem mentally or sometimes we had to use a whiteboard to help us to show our working out.
It was a race to see who finished first! Here are our winners! Well done everyone!
This morning, we had a special treat. Our grown ups were able to stay in the classroom a little longer than normal so that they could play games with us.
We were raising money to support the charity NSPCC. Click here to see more information about what the NSPCC does.
We had a brilliant morning. Thank you to our grown ups for staying and playing with us.
Our Mathematician of the Week has received this award this week for her constant perseverance and excellent effort in her maths this week.
We have been looking at reading, creating and interpreting picture graphs to help us to answer questions. Keep up the hard work!
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 in Pearl Class.
You have tried really hard with your regrouping in maths, answering problems and word problems using column addition.
You even had a go at doing your own sums at home.
Who will be the mathematician of the week after the holidays?
