Human Number Line

In Maths we were learning about ordering decimals and played decimal bingo. The highlight of our lesson was creating our very own human number line. We had to choose a number between 0 and 7, then we had to get into the correct order.

Using Manipulatives!

We had great fun today using manipulatives in maths to convert improper fractions into mixed numbers. Using the cubes really helped us to understand how a mixed number is created.

Solving the Crime!

Today in Maths we were using our multiplication skills to solve a crime. We each had an envelope with puzzles to answer to crack the code!

As a result of using long multiplication, short multiplication and grid method we successfully solved the crime.

We decided that the suspect was Mr Jones, the location was in an Italian restaurant and the murder weapon was a pair of extremely smelly socks.
