We have been busy learning about partitioning numbers and how we can flexibly partition them also. Eagles could show different ways to record their findings and share their own ideas.
This week we have been learning how to compare numbers and we have been using the terms ‘greater than’, ‘less than’ and ‘equal to’. Today in Maths, Owls used calculators to solve addition questions and compared their answers with another number. The children enjoyed using calculators for the first time and worked very hard.

We all agreed that it made maths a little bit more exciting as the program is interactive. We will try to use them more in our lessons from now on. Year 6 gave the laptops a … Continue reading
Ducklings have been experimenting different ways of making number bonds to ten. We learned a number song to support our learning.

During activities we measured using different resources of Duplo and playdough. Finally we discovered … Continue reading

Year 5 are continuing to look at fractions this term. We have learned how to add, subtract and multiply fractions. Today we have started to think about problem solving including fractions and mixed numbers.
