Tables Challenge

Today, in class, we talked about starting a class tables challenge in January. Then this afternoon, coincidentally, I received an email letting me know there is a Sumdog Tables Holiday Challenge.

It begins on the 20th of December and runs until the 9th of January. The winners will be the class with the most correct answers over the course of the challenge. Sumdog goodie bags will be awarded to the winning class and runners up!

In order to prepare for this, as accuracy is key, I have set up two mini-challenges, one over the next two days, and one next week, which you can try if you have time. This is completely optional, as is the Sumdog Challenge, however both would definitely help you to develop your speed and accuracy in preparation for our own class challenge!

To join the challenge log in to your Sumdog account. After you complete the warm up activity select the green button (x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x7)  underneath the blue ‘Maths’ button. This will take you to the tables section. You will see that this week’s challenge is to complete 50 questions.

Good Luck!

Math’s Week

This week is Math’s Week! We applied our numeracy and scientific skills when learning about light and shade. We went to the playground throughout Wednesday and drew a line to show the length and position of our shadows. We then measured the lines and the angles between each one. We sketched the movement of our shadows in class, again using a protractor to measure the angles. We then debated the reasons our shadows change in this way through the day.
