Each morning, P6/7 participate in various mental maths activities, such as counting aloud, completing activities on the interactive whiteboard and going head-to-head as part of a team. Not only do these activities engage and prepare us for the lesson ahead but they also enable us to develop skills and knowledge in all areas of maths.
During our first term, we have been learning to read, write and order large numbers within the area of 'place value.' Through both practical and written activities we have been able to extend our knowledge of the number system. We have also had the opportunity to use our understanding of place value in order to round and estimate the answers to calculations.
