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?
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.
Congratulations to our first winner of Mathematician of the Week in Pearl Class.
You have shown great perseverance in your maths work this week and tried really hard to make sure that you have been applying your knowledge of tens and ones in your independent learning time as well!
Who will win the award next week?
