Inspired by some training today and my drive home in the car, I wondered…..
How many wheels were on our school site today?
What questions would I need to ask to find out the answer?
What data would I need to collect to help me solve this?
Could you write some questions to help me solve this problem?
This half term the children in Reception have been making patterns using musical instruments!
Recently Reception have been learning about number bonds. We have been adding two groups of objects together, recording number sentences both in and outdoors.
Tigers class have been solving a Nrich problem called “One to Sixty-Four” and were learning to read and write numbers, both in numerals and words. Each child chose their own way to display the numbers e.g. in a square, pyramid, steps or other pattern. Then using a 2×2 grid the children had to choose 4 numbers to write in words. Next time the children will use the grids to find numbers to add and investigate to see if there is a pattern.
Tigers class have been learning about fractions! They designed ‘Piggy Pizzas’ and described the food on 1/2, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4 of their pizzas. In the Pizza Kitchen the children used playdough to make pizzas and cut them into halves and quarters.
Thank you to all parents who came along to our Maths Information Sessions. There were various activities linked to all areas of Maths and examples of real-life problems and SAT type questions for parents to read and have a go!
