#### Football subtraction

We have been practising written calculations in maths this week, so today we used our understanding of how to complete subtractions using exchanging by playing a football game outside. We had to run from one football post to collect a number and then run to another football post to collect another…

Today we made repeated patterns. We used lots of different fruits to do this, we had so much fun!

#### Mental maths methods activity

Year 6 spent today’s maths lesson investigating the different mental methods, and informal jottings, which we could use to solve a variety of addition and subtraction problems. We worked in pairs to discuss how we could work out the answers and were surprised by the number of different…

#### Where does the number go?

Today, we have been using blank number lines to estimate where a number would be on it. We had to work out the start and end number on the number line as well as counting the intervals, using midpoints helped us.

#### Place Value work in Y3

In maths we have been focusing on making numbers up to 1000. We have made and partitioned numbers using arrow cards and we played 3 digit races where we had to run to hoops labelled HUNDREDS, TENS and ONES to make a number.  We are becoming experts in knowing what each digit is…

#### Outdoor Maths

We have been revising our knowledge of place value this week. As the sun was shining today, we took the opportunity to get outside and work in groups to challenge each other with our use of function machines, involving multiplying and dividing whole numbers by powers of 10.

#### Place Value investigation

This morning, Year 2 were investigating how many numbers they could make with only six pieces of Base 10. It was a challenge to find all of them!

#### Making 100 in Year 3

We are looking at the number 100 and what it looks like using real objects... We used objects around the classroom to make a 100 in different ways. We stacked and grouped our objects to make them easier to count. We have shown in many different ways that ten lots of ten make 100!

#### Measuring in Year 5 (using metric and imperial measurements!)

In maths we have been looking at measures and converting between measures.  We have learnt about imperial measures and metric. Today we measured the capacity of different containers (in millilitres and fluid ounces) and also different lengths (using cm and inches). It is not always easy to convert…

#### Estimating mass in Year 5

We are learning about different measures and today we focused on mass. We estimated before we weighed the different objects. We found our estimations improved the more that we did it.
