Maths Zone 

At Tidbury Green, we are Maths crazy!

 

 

 

We recognise that maths is a part of our daily life and is useful in so many jobs (e.g. a computer games designer, an architect or an astronaut!). The way we calculate in school today may be different to the strategies and methods you were taught so here are the mental strategies and written methods used by each class so that you can support your child at home:

Year 1 Written Methods and Year 1 Mental Strategies

Year 2 Written Methods and Year 2 Mental Strategies

Year 3 Written Methods and Year 3 Mental Strategies

Year 4 Written Methods and Year 4 Mental Strategies

Year 5 Written Methods and Year 5 Mental Strategies

Year 6 Written Methods and Year 6 Mental Strategies

Maths Day 

Take a look at the slideshow showing what we got up to during Maths Day - it was fantastic to hear how much our pupils enjoyed the day! As well as the fun activities going on in individual classes, Reception – Year 6 pupils had a great time in their workshops too. Reception – Year 4 managed to get Captain Morgan back to his ship using their maths and it was brilliant seeing the excellent teamwork amongst all our pupils. Meanwhile Years 5 and 6 managed to uncover the culprit behind the attempted murder of Michaela Maths using their knowledge of data, measuring and their number facts – well done to everyone!
