We have been working really hard using our addition skills over the past few weeks in class 2!
During the past few weeks we have been learning all about place value in Math’s! This has included finding one more and one less, comparing numbers and understanding the concept of how many tens and ones numbers have and partitioning them in different ways. Here are some pictures of us doing some of the activities!
In Class 1, we have been learning about sequences in our maths this week.
We have been able to identify different sequences modelled by the adults in Bowfell using a range of different materials. We can describe the rule for these sequences; continue the patterns; spot mistakes and correct them by adding or removing pieces.
Today we used materials from our loose parts area to create and describe our own sequences, but can you describe our rules?
Class 3 have been having a great time learning all about mass. We have worked hard at identifying intervals on scales in order to calculate the mass. The children loved practising these skills when estimating and weighing items.
We have had a fantastic start to the term in Class 2. We have been exploring our new areas of provision both indoors and outside. We have been getting to know each other and settling into new routines. From our pictures, we also seem to have done lots of maths!
Class 3 have been learning all about money in maths recently. Here they are totaling up how much money they have and using different strategies to do this efficiently. They are getting quick and accurate at doing this in partners and independently. We have also been looking closely at our British coins – they make up a shield shape if you have one of each!
Class 4 have had a busy few weeks! Alongside SATs for our older pupils, we have also been getting out and about in the school grounds to answer the question “how can we measure that?”
To make sense of the world around us, it’s good to have a way of talking about the sizes of things. We could measure the distance of a line (perhaps in meters), the area of a 2d shape (meters squared) or the volume of a shape (meters cubed!) If we had a really awkward 3d shape, we could also measure its’ volume in liters.
We’ve been measuring all sorts of things in all sorts of ways – check out the pictures below to see what we’ve been up to!
Class 4 have been consolidating their knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages!
Using a range of activities, games and tasks we have been learning how to find how an amount can be written in more than three different ways! There are always many ways to write equivalent fractions; but now we can also now find the corresponding percentage and decimal.
Y4 have been puzzling over how long the sides of a rectangle could be if the perimeter was 20cm. They worked systematically to make sure they had all the possible solutions, It was easier with a system too!
They then used their system to work out if it had a perimeter of 40cm.
Super systematic solving!
