January's Maths fun!
The children have been learning about Estimating. We spent the week building our understanding by estimating in many different ways - how many pieces of fruit were in the bowl, how many stickers were on a piece of paper, how many shoes were in a box, how many goals we could score in 2 mins, how many jumps we could do in 30 seconds etc. At the end of the week we decided to try out our new found estimating skills on a fun problem solving activity. The children were asked to estimate how many children they thought would fit in Mrs Johnstone's car! The children made their estimates and recorded them before piling in one at a time to see how many we managed to get in. We then discussed our findings and whether our estimates were accurate or not. Lots of learning and lots of fun!
