At the end of last week we completed our end of term Spring maths tests and we did really well! We completed an arithmetic test and a problem solving and reasoning test.
This week we have been planning a trip to London. Mr and Mrs Lloyd want to treat their two children to a surprise trip.
We need to help them decide:
and we need to do it using the LEAST amount of money possible!
We are using lots of different mathematical skills we have learnt to help us. For example: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, finding percentages and finding amounts of numbers.
On Thursday, we turned into detectives and had to solve a maths mystery. The school's Easter bunny costume had been cut up into lots of little pieces. We had to solve the mystery by cracking 5 maths clues.
Clue 1: We had to use our knowledge of roman numerals to decide whether the culprit was male or female.
Clue 2: We had to use our times tables to help spell out the colour of their hair.
Clue 3: We had to use the four operations (adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing to figure out how old the culprit was.
Clue 4: Numbers written as words were jumbled up as anagrams. We had to unjumble the words to reveal the clue.
Clue 5: This clue was the hardest. We had to answer a range of questions based on lots of different maths topics to revel the flavour crisps that were found by the destroyed costume!
We had lots of fun solving the crime!
