Roman Code

This morning Mr Little gave us a strange code written in Roman numerals. We had to use our knowledge of Roman numerals to convert the numbers into modern digits and then use those numbers to crack the code.

Snowball Maths

On Wednesday, we didn’t let the snow and freezing temperatures stop our learning.

This half term we have been looking at measurement in our maths learning. On Wednesday, we braved the snow and cold to complete some snowball maths. We worked in pairs to throw snowballs and then measured the distance they travelled using a range of different measuring instruments. We then added the distance of each throw together to find the overall length of our throws.

BBC Supermovers

On Thursday, Sapphire Class took part in the first ever BBC Supermovers live lesson. We were joined by lots of other schools from around the country and took part maths activities that got us moving. We had different dances to join in with and then used the live games to work out fractions, percentages and decimals.

We even received a shout out on live TV!

Supermovers was lots of fun and was a great way to get moving! We can’t wait for the next live lesson!

Place Value

Recently Sapphire class have been working hard on developing our place value knowledge. We have used a range of manipulatives to create different three digit numbers and have deepened our understanding of the value of each digit in a number.

This knowledge is SO important and gives us a good foundation to develop our numeracy skills in the year ahead.

Equivalent Fractions

Recently in Sapphire Class we have been learning about equivalent fractions, a topic which can be really tricky. However we have all persevered and tried really hard. We used magnetic fraction shapes and bars as well as the fraction rods to find how many smaller fractions we could fit into the bigger fraction. We had to be careful because they needed to fit perfectly, with no gaps or overhangs.

This investigating really helped us and gave us a strong foundation for the rest of our fractions learning.
