We looked at arrays today and spoke about how many 'lots of' there were in each number. We investigated 20 and then the children investigated 30 on their own. They worked really hard on this! Ethan, Freddie and Natasha even started to record this on a whiteboard and search for patterns. Well done everyone!
arranged in an array. We have been using the vocabulary 'lots of' to
describe the arrays we have made. We found out that 20 could be: 1 lot
of 20, 2 lots of 10, 4 lots of 5, 5 lots of 4, 10 lots of 2 or 20 lots
Then we worked in pairs to find arrays for different numbers.
Chloe and Isobel worked brilliantly together and remembered to work in
a pattern to find all the ways.

Thank you to all parents who are supporting reading within class on a Monday afternoon. These sessions run from 2:45-3:10pm when we will ask for help with packing away and getting the children ready for hometime. You may then take your child home.
These sessions are really enjoyable for the children so everyone is welcome. It is making a great impact on class reading. The reading afternoon will continue unless stated otherwise- so please come along to a relaxed time with your child to see what they are learning to do!
Today we have been solving word problems in Maths about sharing. Take a look at some of the problems we did and how we chose to solving.
I had 6 sweets and i shared them between 2 people. How many do they have each?
There were 10 teddies and they were shared between 2 boys. How many did they get each?
