Maths Meeting for Parents in Year 3 and Year 4

By Maths, Year 3, Year 4

Thank you to all the parents who came to our first Maths Meeting this afternoon.  We shared St Alban’s journey to maths mastery and our belief that EVERYONE can do maths.  We discussed the importance of fluency and the children being flexible in their thinking so that they notice things and use what they know.

We shared how we use concrete apparatus such as counters to support the children’s understanding and had a go at addition and subtraction calculations.

If you have any questions about what we did or would like to ask for support in other areas of maths, please see Mrs Staniforth.

Our next meeting is at 2:15 on Friday 20th March.  All Year 3 and 4 parents are welcome.  Please ring or email Mrs. Tune to book your place.

Foundation Stage work on subtraction

By FS2, Maths

FS2 have been working on subtraction and last week helped a dinosaur take out his bad teeth!

They also dug in the sand and explored volcanoes while practicing their mathematical skills.

Every time they bowled they wrote number sentences to show how many pins they knocked down.

What calculation would they write here?
