After having a lovely Christmas holiday, P6/7C couldn't wait to revise their numeracy skills they had learnt before. Working in teams, the class had to use the varied mental maths strategies they had been taught to work through the questions asked that included multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. Everyone in the class enjoyed using the program.
Using the mental maths strageties learnt in class to improve speed and accuracy, P6C were able to successfully solve the puzzles that Izack 9 asked. The class worked in teams to gain the answers and enjoyed using the cubes that accompanied the Izack 9 program. P6C have also been working on learning parameter of shapes. Accompanied by their maths textbooks, they have been using the interactive white board to learn how to calculate parameter.
In numeracy, Mr Collins P6s have been working upon mental subtraction skills to improve accuracy and speed. To do this, the class had to learn strategies that included breaking down numbers into multiples of ten, rounding and adjusting, partitioning and knowledge of doubles. Look how well we can do our mental subtraction!
Today in class Mr Collins P6/7 have been working upon mental maths skills; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Each pupil was given sums, asked to work out the answer in their head and write the answer on a white board. Have a look at how well they did!
