Barvember is here! During November, I am challenging you to answer Maths questions using the Bar Model. I will be posting questions every Friday throughout November. All you need to do is to comment with your answers. I will be choosing winners at the end of the month… Good luck everyone! Mr Kay

Isaac went all the way to Rugby with 2CC’s Maths bear and completed lots of calculations. Well done Isaac and thanks for visiting me today! Mr Kay
Just days into Year 1 and 1CC were already exploring different ways of representing numbers within 10! They wrote the numeral, used Numicon, multi link and ten frames to show the value of numbers… even moving on to pictorial representations! Well done Year 1!
Keep up the great learning,
After recently completing the ‘Junior Maths Challenge’, Adwaya has qualified to take part in the ‘Junior Kangaroo Challenge’. The Junior Challenge is aimed at students in Year 8 or below. It is the UK’s most popular mathematics competition with over 300 000 students taking part each year. The Junior Kangaroo is a one-hour multiple-choice paper, with 25 questions, which is sat in school. It is therefore similar to the Junior Challenge question paper (but more challenging!).
Adwaya is a talented Mathematician and we look forward to receiving his results – well done Adwaya and good luck!
I was lucky enough to have a visit from Patrick and Reuben from Miss Miles’ class at break time.
They were able to confidently explain to me what they had been learning about in class and name all of the 2D shapes below…
Hala took the maths learning bear to Tesco and did some maths by adding up decimals. Miss Judge was very impressed. Well done Hala.

Well done for the work and how neat it is and well done for making no mistakes. It looks like you made good progress.
