Year 6 Primary Maths Challenge

This week, our Year 6 students from Muntjac Class took part in the Primary Maths Challenge; a fun and engaging maths experience that challenged them all. Many of the children achieved very highly, so well done to everyone who took part! It was great to see the pupils applying their problem solving skills effectively. Mr Eynon

Doubling Hedgehogs!

Wow! Hedgehog Class have impressed us this week with their doubling knowledge!! We have been doubling numbers all week in a range of different games and challenges! We have sorted dominoes and written the number sentence, hunted for doubles around the classroom and answered them, thrown a dice and doubled the number, and so much more!

You have worked super hard Hedgehogs – well done!

Measuring Hedgehogs!

We have been super busy these past couple of weeks practising our measuring skills! We have explored height, length, capacity and weight! We measured the gruffalo’s footprints and compared them to our own footprints, ordered objects by height, made special gruffalo potions and weighed different items using the scales! We even measured how tall we were and put ourselves in height order. We found out that our tallest Hedgehog isn’t our eldest Hedgehog like we thought it would be!

Shape Homework!

We have been trying really hard to learn all about 2D and 3D shapes. Badger class thoroughly enjoyed sharing their pictures of the models that they created for homework. They were all so different and very creative. Well done Badgers.

Maths, Science and Sweets!

Badger class had a great time in their maths lessons last week. We discussed deciduous trees whilst sorting piles of Autumn leaves and then created a tally to show how to write the numbers in a different way.

Later on in the week, when we were perfecting our recording skills, they created a tally and then a bar chart to show the colours of skittles in a small packet. Great fun!

Shapes in Hedgehog Class!

We have been exploring shapes in Hedgehog Class for the last two weeks. We have been practising all the different names of the shapes, as well as playing a range of games to develop our skills at describing each shape. We have also been using shapes to design patterns, and we worked particularly hard as part of a team to build a group picture. One team worked together to build a tractor, complete with driver and lights, while the other team built a castle with a moat and flags! We then described our picture to the other team.

Fantastic shape learning Hedgehogs!

Shapes, shapes and more shapes!

Wow! Badger class have been working hard getting to grips with 2D and 3D shapes! We have been using lots of new vocabulary to describe the shapes, including sides, vertices, edges and faces! We have created Autumn pictures with 2D shapes including some lines of symmetry, sorted 2D and 3D shapes and found real life examples of these shapes.

Great work Badger Class!

Exploring Number 5!

For our ‘think around a number’ session this week we explored the number 5. We practised writing it correctly, making 5 with the Numicon, drawing 5 spots on a giraffe and threading 5 beads onto a pipe cleaner! We then made our pipe cleaners into bracelets and became members of the 5 club!
