Maths No Problem

At Westwood, we follow the Maths No Problem scheme of work throughout school. In Mulberry class, we split into 4 'groups'. Some children will do maths with Mr Cooper, some children with Miss Robertshaw, some with Mr Hayes and some children with Mrs Thompson and Miss Brown. 
Firstly this half term, we have been thinking about 3 digit numbers and what the value of each digit is. We've used Base 10 to represent the numbers and thought carefully about the position of each number in the place value grid. 
This week, Mr Cooper’s group have been thinking about 2 times tables and doubling. We used base 10 to create the calculations and replaced the add symbol with a multiply to show that doubling is the same as multiplying by 2. 
Today Mr Cooper’s group helped him with a situation. His housemates had done his washing for him whilst he was at school and mixed all his socks up! We helped him sort them back into order to hang up on the washing line to dry. 
We've been thinking about rotations. We played a game where we turned around following Mr Cooper and Mrs Wilson's instructions.
We have been thinking about the value of digits in 2 digit numbers and representing these in different ways.
We've been representing numbers in different ways using lots of different equipment.
In the Spring 1 half term, we spent lots of time thinking about the different methods for addition and subtraction. We started off looking at number lines and counting on and back before moving on to the formal column method of both ways. The children working in school with Mrs Wilson, Miss Robson and Mr Frankland have been doing lots of problem solving work and the children at home have been mastering the different methods!
