Maths

 

At Spilsby Primary Academy, we use Power Maths as a basis for our Maths lessons.  This is an exciting class mastery approach, which has been recommended by the DfE, that works for every child.  it is based upon the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach.    

Year 6 have had a busy week exploring circles, learning vocabulary and using a compass correctly in their math lessons this week. #lifeskills

Spilsby Primary’s TTRS day winners for being absolute legends on Times Tables Rock Stars and earning the most coins for their rapid recall of multiplication facts. Reception were awesome problem solvers and solved a fishy problem! You Rock!!!

Keeping learning fun in year 6 as they keep building their times table knowledge skills and aim to beat their partners.

Year 6 began their new maths unit developing practical math skills using a protractor and recognising how angles in a triangle always equal 180•

To start out capacity unit, Year 3 made their own potions! They used different measuring cylinders to carefully measure out the amount needed and then checked it with an adult. Once they had included some of each ingredient, the children had to add together each of our amounts to find our total potion capacity. 

What better way to understand the formula for finding the volume of a cuboid in Year 6 than using cubes to rearrange the lengths, widths and height.

Practical maths for year 6 today - helping to find a rule in Algebra.

Potion Class ready for today's little wizards and their Maths lesson for an introduction to our capacity unit.

Year 6 had a practical lesson to help understand the formulas used in finding area and perimeter.

Look at that for the most beautiful bar model! Using bar models for multiplication and division for the first time went so well, great work Y3!
