The class enjoyed challenging their brains with a variety of Mathematical puzzles. Some were completed very quickly and others required a lot more thinking. The children worked in pairs to choose and solve different problems. When pupils managed to complete their task, it was checked and then the puzzle number was ticked on their challenge sheet. Well done P5T for completing so many of the tasks!
Ellie provided us with a bit of number fun!

Hero Zero gave P5T their envelope with our Maths Week secret number. We have the number 36 and the 3D shape is a square based pyramid. The class brainstormed some great ideas of what we should do this week.
We enjoyed a numbers Treasure Hunt around the school. The children followed clues and solved number puzzles to collect their ‘playing card tokens’.

This was a very productive morning with pupils working together on their wildlife research. Pupils had to chose to find out facts about either an animal, bird or minibeast. We wrote a list of questions on what we wanted to learn in our research task. The class decided that it was a helpful idea to share good websites and we made a note of these on the board. Once we have collated our information, the children will write their own Scottish wildlife non-fiction booklets, posters and power point presentations.
