Today the class enjoyed competing against each other in the latest round of Edgy Maths. The teams used their reasoning and problems solving skills to solve questions all about our recent classroom work: fractions, missing angles, BODMAS, formulas, units of measurement and place value.
Well done everyone; some amazing scores this time around!
Don’t forget to practice your maths at home too. Just ten minutes a day on Mathletics could really help you make progress; you could follow-up on your classroom learning or identify gaps in knowledge that you could work on.

For those of you in Year 6, there are 97 days until you start your SATS papers. That means if you did 10 minutes a day on Mathletics you could complete over 16 hours of maths practice between now and then (just at home). That has got to help you meet the expected standard!
The year sixes can be seen here taking time to conduct a fair experiment, to find out whether substances dissolve in a solvent or not.
You were all so focussed and determined to make your testing fair! You are all turning into great scientists.
Can you remember what solvent means?
Do you know the features of a good instruction text? Well the class has been ensuring they do, as well as having a go at building a few things of their own. Well done everyone! Why not ask a pupil from the Swans to tell you what writing features you need in an instruction text.
