We had a new record in Year 6 today for completing 100 calculations related to times tables facts (multiplication and division): 1 minute 55 seconds!
During tomorrow’s Parents’ Evening Mrs Maund will be available in the library to demonstrate how maths is delivered at QPA. Handouts will be available to show how we set out our calculations in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, as well as additional information about problem solving. Resources that are used with the children will also be available.
This week’s thought of the week was supported by Mrs Wilson’s assembly about Alan Turing – one of the century’s most impressive mathematicians.
