Magnificent Maths

This week, we have been concentration on addition strategies. We have worked practically with counters, making physical exchanges, seeing where it needs to take place and understanding the importance. Alongside we have been calculating the same sums using the column addition method and noticing the same transactions taking place. We have put our knowledge to good use, solving reasoning questions and representing are addition calculations in yet another way – the bar model. What a great learning experience Year 5!
