Maths Challenge 18.9.17

The children in 6J started their week by having a go at this problem from Nrich. They worked out that you needed to have two odd numbers and two even numbers that were positioned opposite each other in the number ring to make sure all the differences were odd. The next challenge is to explore how to make all answers to in the ring an even number and what happens if we use addition instead of subtraction? Would all the numbers still be even? Have fun investigating.

TT Rockstars is here!

This week has seen the launch of the new and exciting maths website and app TT Rockstars in school. TT Rockstars is a great way for children to have fun with their times tables whilst increasing their confidence. Children will be using TT Rockstars in school but we would also like to encourage children to log on at home and play along with their Rockstar.

Maths Challenge 4.9.17

Each week we will be publishing a weekly maths challenge for all children to have a go at both in school and at home. One of the main reasons we use challenge tasks is because they provide opportunities for all children to work like mathematicians. While the content within these tasks can be quite simple, the level of thinking required is sophisticated. In this way, challenge tasks fit very well with the aims of the primary mathematics National Curriculum of fluency, reasoning and problem-solving. Developing problem-solving skills provides valuable opportunities for children to think mathematically. We look forward to seeing what solutions the children can come up with
