Active maths is really important to us in year 5. We took our maths outside for NSPCC numbers day. First, we recorded the time it took our friends to run from one end of our field to the other and then we collected data on how many animals we could spot including minibeast. From the data gathered the children then created chalked graphs and tally charts. 
This term we have been learning about decimals and percentages. To support the children's understanding they have used place value grid, number lines and the dienes. Manipulatives help secure our understanding and whenever possible we use our resources such as the numicon.
