Mathematics and Numeracy

We've been exploring place value this term and have been applying our knowledge to money!  We have been able to find 10p more and 10p less and we've been working on finding 20p and 30p more.  We've used money in our Raglan Castle role play area and have worked out the cost of Rapunzel's escape route!!  


We are learning to be ambitious capable learners by aiming high and sticking at our challenges, just like Ambitious Alys!

We have used lots of mathematical skills in the Autumn term.  We've tackled place value of 2 and 3 digit numbers and shown how we can use these to make different amounts of money. We used friends of 10 to make friends of 100 and 1000 and have learnt how to double and halve two digit numbers. We also investigated weight by weighing different sized pumpkins.  We used our skills to plan what we could buy at a Bonfire Night party, to make biscuits following a recipe and ordered popular drinks by the amount of sugar they have in them!
