Reasoning

Rowan class spent the first part of the maths lesson working independently to solve some tricky fractions reasoning problems before teaming up to compare and discuss answers. There were some very passionate discussions about who was right and who was wrong, leading to some excellent reasoning with diagrams to support.

World Cup Statistics

Oak class used their mathematics skills to track data during the Brazil v Costa World Cup match this afternoon. They made tally charts to track data of throw-ins, free kicks, offsides, fouls and many more. Next week, they will create graphs to present their information. On a side-note, there seem to be several vocal Brazil fans in Year 6!

Beech class loved Maths Day!

We enjoyed exploring the story of Mr Wolf’s pancakes and helping him with all the maths. We worked out the cost of ingredients, counted the money, worked out the change and measured the pancake mixture. It was great fun…. and tasty!

We also enjoyed playing games in the hall with Miss Carter and teaming up with Willow class to learn how to play times table bingo 🙂

 

Maths day in Pips

Pips children listened carefully to “10 little dinosaurs”.  We then went outside and had to subtract practically as children hid one of the dinosaurs to find out how many dinosaurs were left.  When all the dinosaurs were hidden we added practically as different children went to hunt for the lost dinosaurs.
