Who can make the biggest number?
We played a game to help us understand place value.
The person who made the biggest number scored a point.
The first person to score 10 points wins the game.
Did we all make the biggest number that we could?
Learning how to do column addition with apparatus.
Using Dienes helps us to understand.
We talked about symmetrical shapes and models.
We made 3D symmetrical models for our partner to copy.
It wasn't as easy as we thought it would be.
We tried to find out which irregular and regular shapes we could make.
We made the shape and counted the sides and corners.
We then recorded the names of the different shapes we had made.
We cut up a square into 3 triangles to make our shapes.
We investigated whether a cup of ingredients would always weigh the same no matter what was in it.
We made a recipe for Christmas punch in our capacity lesson.
Our recipe had to use 3 juices and needed to be 200ml.
We then measured out our juices and sampled our drinks....Delicious!
We learnt how to add two amounts of money using coins.
We first compared coins to Dienes using our previous learning.
We had to explain why each coin belonged in each column.
We enjoyed adding money and recording our answer correctly.
Can you solve this calculation?
