STRATEGY WORKSHOPS

In Maths we have been busy thinking of fancy ways to solve addition problems.

Petra, Jacob L and Charlotte P are using place value to solve equations - they are pretty good at it too!


Liam and Mikaela are using number bonds to solve addition equations.


Keira, Emma L and Emma B are also learning number bonds.  They using dominoes to count the two parts to make the whole.



Here's a cool song about number bonds...

Mrs Kenyon read us “The very cranky bear”.

Have a look at how clever we are!
