Last Week’s Superstars — Y5 Amethyst

Congratulations to the well-deserved Mathematician of the Week in Y5 this week. It’s great to hear that, even as the end of the academic year draws closer, pupils are still working hard and developing their learning every day. Well Done!

Here we have our Mathematician of the Week (left) and our Star of the Week (right). Our Mathematician just keeps getting better and better with his times tables, and is also really impressing Mrs Lohoar and Mrs Kirk with his mental maths and problem solving. Our Star, meanwhile, has been absolutely amazing in reading, writing […]

Even more amazing mathematicians…

Congratulations to yet another fantastic Mathematician of the Week. Being able to explain your learning is such an important step on the road to ‘maths mastery’ and shows just how well you’ve understood the learning in your lessons – excellent work Topaz Class!


You have been given this award because of your hard work in maths this week. We have been learning all about money and you have blown me away. You have tried so hard with your work and can explain your learning to a friend! Keep it up!

Times Tables Champions

What Mathematics Superstars we have in Year 4 and what a fun way to encourage children to learn their times tables. Making maths a fun experience is always a great way to keep children engaged with their learning.

It was the last ever Times Tables Quiz Show in year 4. Everyone has worked so hard to learn their tables and as a result, the pupils know them all! It has been so close all the way. Before this Quiz Show, it was 2 wins for Amber Class and 2 wins for Jade Class. […]

Money money money

Wonderful work in Year 3, Sapphire this week. Learning all about money isn’t just an important skill to have in life but it also helps children to understand conversion (from pounds to pence etc…). Keep up the good work!

This week, we have been looking at money in our numeracy lessons. We have been finding different ways of making amounts using both coins and notes. Soon we will be moving on to adding amounts of money together. Check back to see how we get on!

Investigating Shape

How important shapes are! This shape lesson, in Aquamarine Class, not only teaches children the properties of certain shapes but also encourages the pupils to develop their problem solving skills. Brilliant job Year Three!

Today we have been working really hard investigating shapes. We all had a challenge about making as many shapes as possible using only 4 multi-link cubes! We realised we needed to think of more creative shapes or we would run out of ideas! Some of us then went on to try and draw the shapes […]

Spectacular Shapes!

It’s great to see how learning about shapes can happen in so many different ways. Every day, we are surrounded by shapes (both large and small, 2D and 3D) but we might not even notice them! Diamond Class have used the shapes around them to help learn all about triangles, squares etc. Could you go on a shape hunt and see what shapes you can find around your house/school?

Last week we started learning about shapes. To get ready we looked for shapes as part of our home learning. We searched for shapes around our homes and made shape pictures. Next we went on a shape hunt outside. We looked for shapes and took photos. We tried to name and describe shapes and looked […]

Day 100 in Onyx Class

What a fantastic day of maths completed by Onyx Class, all about Day 100. Our pupils have been in Prince Edward, this academic year, for 100 days and Onyx Class celebrated this by undertaking numerous mathematical challenges, surrounding the number 100. Excellent!

We have been counting to Day 100 since we first started full time school way back in September. Can you remember our first days at school? Have a look at the blog post from when we started school. Click here to see it. We’ve all done a lot of growing since then and have got a lot cleverer! We […]

Fractions, fractions, fractions!

What fantastic work completed by the children in Sapphire class on fractions – it’s great to see children using concrete methods to learn and understand a new mathematical skill. Keep up the great work!

Today in Sapphire class we continued our work looking at fractions. We were all given a square piece of paper and we had to fold it into lots of different fractions. We thought that ½ and ¼ were easy to make, however we found fractions such as 1/3 a little trickier.
