Our Maths Challenge to Celebrate Maths Week!
During Maths Week in Y5T/D we held a competitive quiz against the other Year 5 classes - it was brilliant! We all got prepared - we designed banners and indeed a 'Haka' to perform to our competitors! At times, the competition was so tight that it had to go 'sudden death'. In the end Mrs McClimond's class won and our class came 2nd - well done Y5S!
In Year 5T/D we love to participate in group work!
We always remember to:
Give thoughtful feedback
Respect others and their thoughts
On task all the time
Use soft voices
Stay with your group.
We all have different roles - reporter, scriber, time-keeper and motivator
Y5T/D practise their Mental Maths using the iPads!
