This month is Barvember! Children are working with their teachers and their peers to solve hard Maths problems! They are using the 'bar model method' to help them to represent the problem. This supports the children's understanding of what the question is asking. It's a great technique that children in Singapore and Shang-hai use when they are solving mathematical problems. Here are some problems that you could have a go at!

8.11.17 Year 6 children investiagted why square numbers are called square numbers using Numicon!

Teachers will be adding lots of demonstration videos and links to helpful websites on the Parent Support area of the website. Click the link below to see how you can support your child with their Maths learning.
