All adventure stories need characters....
and an end.
Our search for a new pal to help us with our mathematical problem solving activities is now over.
After a long debate, the School Council selected three winning designs for a new Problem Solving Pal.
The Problem Solving Pug
The Problem Solving Panda
The Problem Solving Pineapple
After a second vote it was decided that Douglas Bain’s pineapple would appeal to both boys and girls of all ages. Douglas Bain (Year 6) worked alongside Jill Latter to finalise the pineapple design.
The Problem Solving Pineapple is now a feature in maths lessons across the school and is helping children aged 4 -11 when working on tricky mathematical challenges.
Please find examples of 'Times Table Challenge' sheets below which you may print out at home for your children to improve their speed at answering times table questions.
Please also find a letter explaining the Challenge and how it works.
The following Progression in Calculation policy has been written to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum 2014 for the teaching and learning of Mathematics. It is designed to give a consistent and smooth progression of learning in calculations from EYFS through to Year 6.
Please find attached a document from Rising Stars.
This shows the vocabulary used in our school from EYFS to Year 6 in accordance with the New National Curriculum for Mathematics from September 2014.
Please find attached some Excel spreadsheets which have been kindly made by one of our parents. These will help your children learn their times tables and the corresponding division facts.
You can change the questions by pressing the F9 key.
