Creativity, problem solving, reasoning and progress. This seems to be the way in y4 DT mathematics at the moment. The work the children are producing is of a very high standard. Today we were looking at using the inverse operation to check our answers and solve reasoning questions.
Some of our groups had a very challenging shape puzzle to solve. With triangles and squares given the values of 7 and 17, the children had to work out the value of a mystery circle, which added together gave a total, changing each time.
The children used their knowledge of the inverse operation incredibly well to solve these tricky challenges. We even had a visit from Mrs Heap which inspired the children to work even harder!
Then we moved on to a spot of big maths. Smashing our learn it’s and mastering our doubling the children set about to practise the vital aspect of mathematics. In our times table duel everyone gave a wonderful performance showing incredible link making and enjoying of challenge.
Well done Year 4, keep being you.
