P4 Numeracy

This term P4 have been exploring new strategies and resources to help with our maths. We have been improving our mental maths through the use of empty number lines and partitioning. Using these strategies we then got the chance to challenge ourselves using the ‘Chilli Challenge’. We could chose medium, hot or super spicy depending on the level of challenge we wanted.
We have also been getting stuck in with our new resource, Numicon. We had great fun exploring the shapes and what they represent, as well as playing some tricky games. While exploring we used lots of mathematical language and were able to have great discussion using our knowledge of maths and number. Not only did we learn how to use this new resource, but we all also used mental addition and subtraction strategies.image image image image
