In maths we have been learning about multiplication and the special rule that means a multiplication can be completed in any order.
We enjoyed making arrays using counters to help us understand this.
We wrote multiplication number sentences to match the arrays that we had made.
In maths we are learning about fractions.
We made 'pizzas' to help us understand this.
We learned that some fractions are the same size, for example one half and two quarters.
We learned about describing position. As part of this work, we programmed Beebots to travel around different mazes in the classroom.
We had to think about directions, different kinds of turns and say the positional language as the Beebots moved.
This was a fun and practical way to work together to explore the vocabulary associated with position.
This week we learned about right angles in maths.
We made 'right angle eaters' and used these to help us identify right angles around the school and on 2D shapes.
We sorted 2D shapes into sets depending on whether they had right angles or not.
In Maths we have been thinking about the value of the digits in a number.
We used place value cards and Dienes equipment to make one- and two-digit numbers.
This helped us to understand that the position of the digit in a number affects its value.
