Maths Game

Yesterday Maddy and Eva from 4A came to our classroom to share a maths game that they had developed for a maths project.

They did a fantastic job of explaining the game including a Learning Focus and Success Criteria.IMG_1781 IMG_1782

Eva and Maddy brought all of the materials needed apart from the 10 sided dice.

The game involved throwing two die, multiplying them and placing a small cube on the answer – laminated sheet (if it was there!)

3A thought that the game was well thought out and that the girls explained the rules with confidence. They were also very helpful.

THANK YOU!!!

Fractions!

Well, it feels like we have hit the ground running! We have had a busy week of learning.

It was great to come back to school on Monday after two weeks of holidays. Everyone had big smiles on their faces and we were all happy to see each other again.

In Maths we have been learning about fractions. We know that fractions are a part of a whole. We have been looking at fractions of shapes and fractions of collections of objects.

We made our own fractions walls which are on display in our classroom.

On Friday we made a human fraction wall using 20 different fractions which included 1/4s, 1/3s, 1/6s & 1/8s.

This week we will continue to explore fractions.

What do you know about fractions?

Money

Learning about money has been lots of fun this week!

We made our own lunch order and worked out what we would buy with $10.00.

We played shops with 3B. We had $10.00 to spend and we had to add coins together and work out change. At the end we added our purchases together – spat least one person ended up with more money than they had to begin with!
