We will, we will… round you…

This week we have been explaining how to round ANY whole number to ten million.

We used a great song to help us with our calculations…

“You’ve got to find the place and then look next door- if it’s 5 or greater then add 1 more. All the digits at the front stay the same- all the numbers at the back zero is their name.” (to the tune of We will rock you)

We then applied our fluency to solving problems and reasoning about rounding whole numbers.

Take a look at us talking about our Maths to a learning partner.

Maths Ambassadors in Nursery…

 
Another marvellous maths ambassadors mastery session in Nursery.  The ambassadors were challenging the nursery children to write numbers in the glittery sand tray.
Mrs Terrel  heard one nursery child say, ” I like those big boys helping me!”

POP Maths …

Here we are at Sheffield Hallam University on a Saturday morning taking part in the POP Maths Challenge.
We worked together as a team and answered some VERY challenging questions. We had an amazing experience and were overjoyed to take 7th place.
After lunch we attended a lecture from the mathematician Ben Sparks. 
Mr Evans and myself (Miss J) are really proud of you. Thank you.
