Tanzanite Transport Time Problems

Today, in maths, we looked at challenges associated with time and transport. We all managed to solve challenge 1 (look at some of our examples in photo) and started challenge 2.

Maybe you could finish challenge 2 together at home.

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays to everyone in Magma class (and Year 5!). You really impressed me, your adults and the other teachers with your end of year performance – a great way to finish the year.

On Wednesday we also had our treat for filling the marble jar – we had a lot of fun and you made a great drawing on the board which I’ve included here.

Finally, as well as enjoying a well earned break, remember to be reading over the holidays and practising the skills you found tricker this term. I’ve suggested using results from this week’s mini tests to help you think which skills you should work on with an adult.

See you in 2019!
