Year 5 Magnus Maths Challenge
We sent a team of four children to a maths challenge at the Magnus School. Joseph Gibson, Ananthu Prakash, Dex Robinson and Rebecca Smith represented the school fantastically and at the end of all the rounds were in joint first place with John Hunt Primary. A tie break question was set to work out how many seconds were in a day and the team was just pipped to the post.
Well done team!!
Year 5 Maths Open Morning
Wow! What a great response to our Maths open morning! Twenty one parents and relatives joined their children in the classroom today to see what maths lessons look like at Barnby Road. Lots of fun was had by all playing bingo, solving puzzles and playing games. Feedback was really positive with comments like: 'I didn't do that until secondary school and these children understood it', 'the children were really enjoying maths' and 'lots of specific maths words were used confidently'. Thank you to all who came!
A couple of parents asked for guidance on how we do calculations. Remember that there is a Parent's Calculation Policy on the school website in the 'Curriculum' and 'Maths' folder.
