Maths week - Problem Solving

During this week, dedicated to Maths, we focussed on Problem Solving and how we use that to aid our working out during Maths lessons.

 

The children in Year 6 had a great time applying mathematical functions to problems in order to get an answer.

 

Have a look through some of the activities we did and our pictures and see for yourselves what Magnificent Mathematicians your children are!!!
