One of the active Maths activities that we completed in Year 5 this week, was practising mental addition and subtraction problems using 3 and 4 digit numbers.
“In teams, pupils had to run and collect 6 number and operation cards that were placed under cones as quickly as possible. Then they worked together to complete the number sentence using their mental Maths skills. As an extra challenge they considered whether they could rearrange the number cards to make a different calculation. It was a fun, fast-paced activity! They children had to move quickly, think quickly and work in teams.”
