Future codebreakers at work in Oak class!

Oak class have been challenging themselves with some codebreaking activities. It’s given us a bit of insight into how writing secret messages would’ve felt throughout certain points in history.

We’ve also been applying our knowledge of all areas of maths with some head-to-head group tasks.

Great work today, Oak. Enjoy your weekend and see you during Feeling Good Week!

   

NSPCC Number Day

Maple have had lots of fun with numbers today!

We started off by developing and improving our mental strategies to help us add and subtract numbers past 10. Some of the strategies we found were

8 + 4 = 8 + 2 + 2 = 12.

6 + 7 = 6 +6 + 1 = 13.

We tried to find the relationships between numbers to help us.

 

Then we had fun code breaking and writing secret messages to each other! Miss Green even wrote a secret question for us on the board!

We finished the day with some creative maths, colouring in timestables and creating a timestable fortune teller.

 

We all decided at the end of the day that numbers and maths can be fun even though it is sometimes hard!
