What it's like to be a Mathematician


March 2022 - Year 2 -2D and 3D Shapes

Year 2 have been making 2D and 3D shapes. Using play dough and spaghetti, elastic bands on peg boards and lollipop sticks, they have become much more familiar with the shapes and their mathematical properties. They also had lots of fun along the way!

May 2021 - World Maths Day with Captain Tom 100 - Year 6

As part of World Maths Day, and continuing their Captain Tom 100 Challenge from last week, Year 6 undertook a maths challenge where they had to make totals of 100 by using a special 2x2 grid.

Party Planning - Year 1 - February 2020

Year one had to count out items for a party.  We imagined how it would feel to not have enough party bags or cupcakes.  We talked about the arrangement of the items and how it could help when counting up to 50 items.  Some groups remembered that tens and ones could help to count up quickly and helped them be more accurate when counting larger groups.
