In class today we were learning about partitioning and how it can make sums easier. For example 56 + 64 becomes 50 + 60 = 110 then do 6 + 4 = 10 All together that would be 120.
We went on to the computers to do talking and listening active maths the games we played place value and number detective. Some tips for the place value game is to look at the units and make sure it is the same units then add on the right amount of tens. For the detective game you have to use the right questions, for example is it odd or even were the best to ask because they got rid of a lot of numbers. We enjoyed it.

On the 1st of March 2011 it was World Maths Day. Everyone at Port Ellen Primary took part , we challenged children from all over the World on the World Maths Day website. At the end the best pupil and with the highest score was Reece Bowman with a grand total of 558. You could get anyone from any part of the world you could get someone from China , Japan , Hong Kong or even Hungary and maybe if you were lucky you could get one of your friends.
