Guess my number!

This week in Maths we have been revisiting some of the work we have done earlier in the year, and then building on our knowledge and using it to help us solve problems.

Remember –

  • Even numbers of objects can be shared equally between 2 people and there will be no remainders.
  • If a number is even, it will have 0,2,4,6 or 8 in the units column.
  • If a number is odd, it will have 1,3,5,7 or 9 in the units column.
  • When rounding a number to the nearest 10, if it has 5,6,7,8 or 9 units, we round up.
  • If a number has 1,2,3 or 4 units we round down.
  • When using the signs < and >, think of a crocodile eating the biggest number. So 25>15 (25 is more than 15) but 25<30 (25 is less than 30)

Here are a couple of fun games to help you practise. (Click on the  images to link)

Next week we will revisit our learning of addition and subtraction. Knowing our number bonds really helps us build our confidence when adding and subtracting numbers. The links below will help you practise these skills. In Morning Task time, the children will be working on their next challenges in their Maths Passports.

When adding and subtracting, the children learn to use resources such as our LEGO bricks, which are glued into blocks of 10, and units. This helps them to clearly see what is actually happening when we add or take away. We also use a 100 square to help us, we have these in the back of our Maths books as a fold out page. If you would like one for home too, please just ask in class.

This weeks Mathlete of the week was RE, as although she has been away in Tehran, she still managed to find some internet connection  and achieved her Mathletics Certificate while she was away.

Special Mention was given to LP as she has really worked with a ‘Growth Mindset’ this week, persevering and practising to help her master the work we did in class. Well done to everyone too, you have all been ‘being the best you can be’ and ‘great learners.’ We did have two other Special Mentions, but as they missed the assembly they will be awarded next week.

Don’t forget it the ‘S FACTOR’ auditions on Tuesday afternoon! So if you have a science experiment to share with the class, please bring it in. If you have made a video, please email it to me or Mrs Loveridge.
