Year One have been having fun with fractions this week. The week started off by learning what half means and finding half of a shape. The children enjoyed cutting out shapes, folding them in half and colouring in one half of the shape. Next we focused upon finding half of a quantity. Firstly, we use


In maths this week, the children have been exploring how shapes can be combined and separated to make new shapes.  We have investigated building shapes using smaller shapes and combining shapes in different ways to make pictures.  The children talked about the names and the properties of the shape


The children in Year 3 have worked hard in Maths learning about aspects of time.  They have learnt to read the time in 15 minute intervals using o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past.  They have also explored the months of the year, describing when their birthday is.  The boys and gir


Over the past two weeks, we have been using our place value knowledge to understand tenths and hundredths. Throughout this time, the children have used visual representations to help them identify tenths and hundredths, written tenths and hundredths as fractions and decimals, as well as using part-w


The children in Year 6 have been learning about volume.  To begin with, they used multilink cubes to make 3D shapes of given volumes and learnt that shapes with the same volume can look very different.  Then, they used the cubes to make 3D shapes from pictures and find their volumes. The children


The boys and girls in Year 3 have enjoyed using different units of measurement to explore length and height.  To begin, they used 30cm rulers to measure in centimetres and millimetres.  Then they used metre sticks to measure the length of objects in the playground, recording their answer in metres
