This week some very brave mathematicians in Key Stage Two attempted the Primary Maths Challenge. The Primary Mathematics Challenge is a fun and exciting mathematical Challenge which encourages enthusiasm, boosts confidence in mathematics and shows the different way questions can be asked :it really helps to develop pupil's reasoning skills whilst encouraging logical reasoning.Congratulations to our gold, silver and bronze certificate winners.
"I began my work today on short division with great confidence because I am good at my tables...but long division was tricky! I will need to practise using my COIN card." Hope (Y4)
We really enjoy applying our maths skills to real life, some examples are when we bake, shop, run Film Club tuck shop and play sport.
Here we are working hard on this year's exit poll data from the 2015 General Election.
