Maths is fun at Green Top!

The Year 5 life skills groups with Mrs Walton used weight and measure to bake cookies in preparation for the following days maths lesson about fractions.

They were rewarded for their hard work by eating the cookies after they divided them into the correct fractions.




Hands-on Maths Learning

Troy, Liam, Lacey and Harley produced some beautiful work in maths today. They used multi-link cubes to develop their understanding of what volume is and how we can calculate it. I was very impressed with the mathematical language they used and by the end of the lesson we had achieved gold standard. Great work guys!

Let’s get measuring!

We have been so busy in Class 6 exploring different ways to measure length and height. The children have used standard and non-standard units to explore this. The children loved drawing around Mrs Langton, Mrs Hay and Mrs Stone to investigate how tall they were.

I wonder…can you measure your own height and write it in your homework book for an extra 10hps?


Time in Class 6

Year 1 have been learning about time this week in maths. Today they worked in collaborative groups to match the written time to the analogue clock. To help your child at home, you could practise with them:

  • saying or singing the months of the year and days of the week
  • telling the time on an analogue clock for o’clock and half past the hour

If you can practise time at home, you will be awarded an extra 20 house points.


2D shapes in Year 1

This week Year One are busy learning all about 2D shapes. Can you go on a shape hunt at home to find some 2D shapes and talk about their properties? Take photos or draw them in your homework book. You will be awarded with 15 house points for doing some extra homework! Happy hunting!
