Doubling and Halving in Robins

This week, Robins have been working on their doubling and halving skills. Today, they were left some really tricky word problem to work out for themselves. They decided which questions they wanted to attempt and which resources (if any) they'd like to help them. They...

Another busy week in the Dragonflies class

It’s been another busy week in the Dragonflies class. The children have been exploring lots of mathematical concepts this week. They have learnt about 3D shapes and have enjoyed counting the aqua beads using the numicon. They have also enjoyed exploring volume and...

Conquering Capacity in Robins!

Robins have worked incredibly hard this week learning all about capacity and how it differs to volume. It has been a tricky concept to get their heads around but today the children have shown just how great their understanding is by solving problems in groups. They...
