Statement of Intent:
26.9.19- In Class 1 we are making our mental maths sessions active a few times a week now. This week we went to the hall and used cones to help us with our place value skills. We had a great time and all agreed it was a great way to count 10s and 1s. We had cones which had different values and had to use quick addition skills to work out which number we had made. It was really fun.
23.9.19- In maths we have been solving some problems and learning how to write the number words to go with the numerals which we already know. We are going to get better and better at it.
One of our topics in maths this Spring half term has been odd and even numbers. We decided to make a reminder of the skills we have learnt by making some monsters. First we had to create our monsters and then record the different parts into the odd or even group. They are up in the classroom as a constant reminder.
In maths we are continuing to work on our quick fire maths. We have been practicing our multiplication skills, using arrays to help us. We are becoming very efficient using money, including £ and p. We have enjoyed using coins to make amounts and give change, after using our addition and subtraction skills we learnt last half term.
A big focus this half term has been place value and the addition and subtraction of numbers. We have been having fun using our skills in different ways using both formal written methods and by using apparatus and games to help us perfect our skills.
19.12.19- The children in Class 3 have been working hard to solve the mystery of the missing Christmas pudding! We used lots of maths skills such as multiplication and division to solve the clues!
10.10.19- The children in Class 3 have been working very hard on their addition and subtraction. We have been using place value grids to work out the answers to our number sentences. As a class, we went outside and used chalk and cones to create a place value grid on a bigger scale. The children had lots of fun moving their ‘place value counters’ to find the answers.
This half term we have been focusing on our place value and addition and subtraction. We have used a number of different questioning techniques to get the children thinking to ensure that they can problem solve and reason.
