Huff and Puff Maths


Posted by misscarey | Posted in Numeracy, Uncategorized | Posted on 07/11/2014

Every Friday morning the whole school is involved in Huff and Puff where students and teachers run and walk around the school collecting counters for their House.

When 1/2AC come back in we always do some maths with the counters. Sometimes we practise counting or our addition strategies, often we use tens frames to help organise the counters. Other times we might practise multiplication or division by making arrays, groups of or sharing the counters into groups. Sometimes we will make a graph with our counters and do some statistics and analyse the data, talking about why one team might have more counters than another.

You can see a video of some of the maths talk that happened this morning when we were adding up our counters.

Week 5 Numeracy – Multiplication

This week the students have continued learning about multiplication. They now know how to show multiplication as; group of, as rows of (arrays) and repeated addition.

We read ‘One is a Snail, Ten is a Crab’ and made posters about the groups of animals. You can see some posters that demonstrate their growing understanding of multiplication.
