Maths

Division

We talked about all the different vocabulary to describe what we were doing. Division, shared by and groups of were all great suggestions. We then completed calculations and the blocks helped us to understand where the remainder comes from. It helped to rectify our mistakes too.

Polar bear maths…

The Polar bears have been using a range of online and concrete manipulatives to represent 4 digit numbers, and then combining them with other numbers with a focus on regrouping.

Polar bear maths

The Polars Bears used place value mats and counters to identify when and how regrouping occurs. They enjoyed the opportunity to see the maths.

Maths…

The Polar Bears thought of different ways to generate numbers before rounding to 100, 1000, 10000 and even 100000.

Mastering Multiples

Our Sea Lions were practising their knowledge of multiples using their counting sticks. Then, the children worked together to identify common multiples using a Venn Diagram. Next week the children will use three numbers and find the common multiples.

Place Value

At the start of year, when it was incredibly hot, the Sea Lions took their learning outside. We looked closely at place value and the children asked each other some tricky questions!

Units of Measure

The Robins have been working on units of measure. Here they are ordering with litres and millilitres to try and understand the relationship.

Equivalent Fractions

The Badgers have loved building their own fraction walls in maths. We have used the fraction walls to answer lots of different questions about fractions. The children have learnt what equivalent fractions are and are even beginning to make links to their times table and division knowledge to help them.
