Year 6 maths
This week in maths lessons, Year 6 have been practising a variety of methods for solving long multiplication problems.
To put their knowledge to the test, the boys were asked to complete a problem-solving activity that required them to work together in teams. Each group was given a set of 10 long multiplication word problems, which they had to work through one at a time.
With each correct word problem, they were awarded a letter. After 10 questions they would have to solve an anagram to find the secret code word or phrase to unlock the reward chest. It was a very close competition and the groups worked against the clock to complete the activity.
Well done to Jacques G, Matthew H and Thomas M who managed to unlock the prize chest first. A big well done also to the other boys who still continued to work through the problems and complete the task.
