Maths

 

In Foundation Stage we have been learning about and making our own repeating patterns. We have also been learning to name 2D shapes and explore ways of constructing with these shapes.

In Sunshine and Rainbow class we have been finding ways to explore the different areas of maths. 

When cooking our apple crumble we weighed the ingredients out. We have also been using the balance scales to see which amount of small toys would be heaviest or lightest. 

It has been fun using both our indoor and outside environment to explore different ways of counting, representing and recognizing numbers.

Year 6 Theme Park Maths

 

The children have been using many different Maths skills to become Theme Park Owners. Not only have they had to use their knowledge or area and perimeter to design and build their own theme parks, they have also had to be accountants, adding and subtracting, multiplying and dividing figures that on occasions ran into the millions of pounds (if only!).

Below are just a few of the fantastic designs by created by the children.

Year 3 have been investigating how shadows change over time. We have used our maths to measure the results.

Year 4

We are investigating units of time and converting time from smaller to larger units. We have been looking at how many days are in each month by using calendars and calculating how many days and weeks are between 2 dates.

Year 6 DT Day - a little bit of Maths!

 

Whilst making our replica Anderson Shelters, we had to ensure the measurements of our frame were accurate. We measured to the nearest centimetre taking into account the width and length of our shoe boxes.

Year 3 had maths fun outside using multi-step directions.

Year 3 are having fun whilst learning about multiples of 4, 8 and 12.

Maths Investigation

The children this morning were set the challenge of looking for as many different 2D shapes that they could find around the school playground. They managed to find circles, squares, rectangles and triangles. Mr Woodward and Mrs Howes then set the children the difficult task of trying to find a hexagon and pentagon. With some careful counting of sides and corners, the children managed to find out that the seating areas and huts in the playground had 6 and 5 sides.

We really enjoyed our maths lesson today!

Theme Park Maths in Year 6

This term the children are learning all about BIG Business and the different elements of Maths involved in running an every day organisation. The children have been given the task of opening their very own theme park! With £500,000 to spend, they are expected to buy rides, from rollercoasters and water rides to olden day Victorian carousels and dodgems. As well as the rides, the children also have to add in extra costs such as laying down pathways to connect all the rides and amenities as well as ensuring there is money in the kitty for building toilet blocks and restaurants. All of this involved many tough calculations and keeping a running cost. On top of this, the children had to draw out their theme park - this involved using their knowledge of area and perimeter.

This type of cross curricular problem solving has really engaged the children - they can see a purpose in doing what they're doing. I wonder if any of them will take over Dreamland when they're older?

Shape fun in Year 4!

 

In Year 4 this week we have been learning about different types of triangles and quadrilaterals. Today we had great fun collecting clues describing different quadrilaterals from the playground. We then had to work out which quadrilateral the clues were describing!

 Purple Class solving Decimal Fractions.

 

The children were having fun solving a mathematical problem, which was finding  all the decimal fractions with only 2 decimal places exactly. They then began to investigate lots of amazing patterns they found in fractions and decimal fractions.
