Year 3 welcomed adults into school for their times table cafe last week.
The cafe was well attended and it was great to see so many grown ups support their children with their learning.
This morning, Year 4 were joined by some of their grown-ups for a times tables café. They had juice and pastries and had lots of fun practising their times tables through games and activities.
Thank you to all who joined us!
This week we have been finding out about the changes we will see as we move into the next season. We know that Autumn is the next. We have been looking out for some of the changes that occur at this time of year and spotting the signs of Autumn. On Thursday we will be going on a walk to the outdoor classroom to try and observe some of these seasonal changes. In the classroom we have explored the Autumnal small worlds and used pine cones to help develop our fine motor skills. We have been practicing our maths and turn taking skills by playing games like snakes and ladders.
This week, Year 6 demonstrated excellent problem solving skills and used trial and improvement to find a solution when taking part in our whole school maths investigation – ‘Frogs’! Children were able to think strategically and work very systematically, whilst also developing their own recording system.
Year 6 have been hard at work preparing for high school Maths! They have been learning all about algebraic notations and exploring substituting numerical values into expressions. Today, children used calculators to explore sequences and the ‘nth’ term, a concept which needed lots of concentration!
Year 3 investigated polygons today and saw what shapes they could make from putting different ones together.
Then they moved onto marking the vertices on isometric paper!
Today Y5 were tasked to use trial and improvement to answer the below questions. They all worked extremely hard and were determined to find all the possible solutions.
We’re back with a bang in year 4! This week we have started a new unit of work in Maths. We are learning about time. We have started by recapping our learning from previous years including years, months and weeks. Today, we started to tell the time from a clock beginning with o’clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to. We played a game to help us embed our knowledge.
Some of our Year 6 mathematicians ended last half term with a Maths competition hosted by Langley School. The children worked fantastically as a team and represented the school admirably. Miss Chamberlain even got stuck in with the tasks too!
