Week 2

Multiplication Bingo
This week, we have been doing a variety of activities.
We continued exploring place value and using our place value language to explain our problem solving but on Tuesday, we talked a lot about our Maths Club values with whaea Susan and how important it is to show respect and listen to others. We showed whaea Susan our Maths Club values poster and talked about the ideas on it.
On Wednesday, we played 'Cover-Up Kiwi' which helped us to see different ways of making a number. For example, ten can be four plus six or five plus five.
On Friday, we played Multiplication Bingo. We used counters to show the 'groups of' and find the answers. We also worked out that 'groups of' is another name for 'times'. For example, 2 x 4 is the same as saying, "2 groups of four".

Week 1

Using Place Value Money to Solve Word Problems
This week we have been revising our place value knowledge by expanding and compacting numbers, and making links between place value and value.

We have also been using place value money to solve word problems involving addition. Some of the word problems were hard but it was great to see that most of the students were using their place value language to 'exchange' ten of something for one of a greater value.

Creating Our Environment

Our Maths Club Values

Wednesday 1st July

We met to set up our shared values. We decided on how we would behave based on how we would like others to treat us.  We all agreed to our 'Maths Club Values' and, to remind us, we have this poster displayed on our wall.

First Day!

'Maths About Me'
Tuesday 30th June

We met for the first time and found out a little about each other by creating our 'Maths About Me' posters.

We also did a survey about how we feel about maths and what maths related activities we do at home.
