This week year 4 have been subtracting using formal methods in mathematics and have been reasoning about whether they would rather have 3x50p or 7x20p.

This week we have looked at place value and practised some mental maths. We learnt that you have to think about what goes in the space. For example: 1639, 2639, 3639 – Josh, year 4.
