We have had an introduction to fractions. We have learnt what a fraction is and some new vocabulary. Numerator and the denominator.
UNDERSTANDING ABOUT DECIMALS
We have used the base 10 equipment to understand about decimals.
We created our own factor bugs to help us remember our factor pairs for numbers.
We have used counters to create arrays to represent number sentences from our nine multiplications.
We worked with a partner and used dice to play an estimation game. We had to create a number that would get the closest to our target number of 5000. We really enjoyed this Maths lesson.
WRITTEN METHODS FOR ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION
We have been teaching each other how to use the column method to add 4 digit numbers.
We have been working in small groups to investigate place value problems.
