We have just finished our shapes unit in Year 1, working really hard to differentiate between 2D and 3D and being able to identify all the shape names. We looked at what shapes lots of everyday items are which helped us remember the shape names! We used sorting hoops to Read more…

n year 5, we have been working extremely hard to improve our times table knowledge to support and develop our learning in Maths. We have used a variety of games to practice our multiplication and division facts. I

We have been using our Maths resources practically to solve some tricky problems! We are now fabulous at using tens frames, number lines and counters! We have really enjoyed doing adding this week and exploring lots of different ways to find the answer. We have also been focusing on Read more…

Reception are confident working with numbers to 5. This week we are creating our own number stories focussing on the language of counting backwards, taking away and less than.

Well done to all the children who collected their certificates in assembly this morning. Mrs Brierley is very proud of you all!

This morning, year 4 have made a fantastic start to the new term! We have been practicing our times tables using ‘mad minutes’, TT rockstars app and hit the button. Children are now motivated to practice at home more to increase their confidence with their times tables. They can access Read more…

Reception have been exploring different ways to represent numbers up to 4. We have been checking we can touch count accurately and used a five frame to help us see the different ways we can represent the same amount.

We have had a wonderful start to Year 1! We have been enjoying working together cooperatively in Maths.. We have loved getting creative and exploring our new classroom.. We all worked together to come up with class rules which include being kind to each other. Here are some of the Read more…

What a successful start to the new school year! I have been extremely impressed by Year 3 and their effort in Maths over the last week. They have tried very hard and have enjoyed using the practical equipment to explore Place Value. Well done Year 3, I am very proud Read more…

Today, children in year 4 have been exploring Power Maths. They have been rounding numbers to 10 and 100 using a range of mathematical equipment and applying different techniques to achieve their goals. Well done Year 4!

In Maths, Year 3 have been learning about the properties of different shapes. Last week they explored the properties of a variety 3-D shapes and today they had a go at making some. Their first challenge was to make a 3-D shape using blu tac and their second challenge was Read more…

This week we have been busy using ten frames and coloured counters to find all the different ways to make ten. We have learnt that these are called number bonds.

Today we made the most of our outdoor learning area and went on an arithmetic hunt. The children had a range of questions and puzzles to solve in order to crack the code at the end. Even revision can be fun!

Who says revision can’t be fun. This week we have been consolidating our understanding of fractions and how to calculate them. Working with fractions is always an area that the children feel less confident with but this week they have shown a fantastic understanding of the areas covered. Well done Read more…

Year 3 have been working hard in Maths this half-term and the focus so far has been on multiplication and division. In today’s lesson they were learning about division with remainders. To do this, they had to explore how many squares they could make out of 13 lollipop sticks; the Read more…

Reception children have been investigating different ways to represent 5. They are confident using Numicon shapes and are now partitioning 5 into two groups using a lots of different resources.

Year One have been working with a variety of concrete resources in mathematics, helping us to develop our understanding of number bonds. We have been also been understanding that calculations can be written in many ways. We showed our calculations in a part, part whole model, bar model and also Read more…

Today in maths, year 5 have been focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages. They used flip cards and fraction dominoes to match, identify and name the equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages. Take a look at what we’ve been up to today.

Reception have produced some wonderful writing about fireworks. They created rockets from a cone and a cylinder and even made their own backing paper in the form of Jackson Pollock!

Children have been working really hard to master the skills on their maths passports. Using the support of numicon the children have been developing their understanding of number bonds to 10. You can practise your number bonds to 10 at home using the song ‘Farmer Pete’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=poJmS5iWfEs

Reception have been exploring numbers up to ten. They have been introduced to Numicon shapes and rods and enjoy exploring number both indoors and outside!

This week Year One have been developing accuracy when measuring. We have been looking at capacity, length and weight. The children recorded their results and applied their knowledge into solving measurement problems.

This week, Year 4 started a new unit in Maths – ‘Statistics’. They began by collecting their own data. To do this, they conducted a survey to find out what the favourite sandwich fillings are of all the children in Year 4. They used a tally and frequency chart to Read more…

Mm, cm, m mission. Your task, Year 3 should you choose to accept it, is to measure in millimetres, centimetres and meters, but beware there is a time limit and should you fail, an explosion WILL occur.

This week Year one have been working extremely hard to master multiplication. We have used a variety of concrete objects including numicon and cuisenaire rods. Some children developed the skill of using arrays to solve their multiplication sums. Other children challenged themselves to solve problems which included completing multiplications of 2’s, Read more…

This week Year 3 have been working with pounds and pence. They have used coins, menus and price lists to work out the cost of items, how much it would be for a shopping list and how much change they would receive from different pound notes.
