Numeracy

In maths we have been looking at place value with straws. We can work out how many tens and ones we have by using our magic method of ‘making trees!’ We had lots of fun and can make lots of different numbers.

In Year 2, children have been learning about place value using lots of different resources. Children used straws, diennes rods and tens frames to make different numbers. They then counted the tens and ones in each number.

'Double trouble'

In Year 3, Children have been working on doubling numbers...

To help us understand we made number 'twins' with cubes and then counted them up.

We were able to see that when we double we have two lots of the same number

Year 4 have had a fabulous time using what they already know to create Roman Numerals 1 - 39. It wasn't easy but now we can add, subtract and order numbers using Roman Numeral representations.

In Year 4, we have been learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes including how 3D shapes are made from nets. We investigated a range of nets to see which would create a cube then used our knowledge of nets to create our own.

Our young mathematicians would love to share their recent work with you. They have been working extremely hard to develop their ability to explain their understanding and represent it in a range of different ways. Please take the time to watch the videos bellow. I am sure you will agree that we have a lot of very talented children. 

Year 2 came in to see their classroom changed into a gift shop. "Wow! Look at all of this!" said Max. "It's a good job I counted my money this morning" said Grace. 

 

The children took turns to be the shop keeper and the customer. They were each given an amount to spend and practised counting on forwards or backwards to help them give the correct amount of change.

Take a look at some of our talented year 6 pupils representing their understanding of place value in money.

Can you spot their use of written place value methods?

Point to any practical (concrete) resources!

 

“I was really impressed with the way the children worked collaboratively to help each other reach a secure understanding of numbers with 2 decimal places.“  Miss Dodds (Year 6 Teacher)

Year 2 have explored properties of 3D shapes and irregular polygons. They worked together to complete a range of activities.
In Reception, the children have been using compare bears to find 1 more and 1 less than a given number. Isla was able to say "I add one more the number gets bigger."

Year 3 have been working on fractions!

Civadhanu showed one quarter by selecting 3 pencils and 1 pen, Ethan was able to show us quarter past the hour and Leo showed a quarter of a triangular based pyramid by changing the colour of one of the sides.

Blue Group said that Numicon showed fractions. This one is shared into quarters.

 

Ethan, Amelia, Millie, Freyja, Isabelle and Liam talked about how things can be split up into fractions.
