Which Script?

I absolutely love this kind of maths! I love problem solving and logic. Well done Y3s!

This week in maths we have been looking at different number and place value problems.

In this problem there are six numbers written in five different scripts.

We had to sort out which is which!

Here is one of our solutions:

We started with one hundred because it’s the only three digit number. However, there was only 3 of them. We then found all the twos because that is the only one digit number. Then we used the two to find all the twenty fives. We used the five to find all the fifty eights and then the eights to find the eighty threes. Then we used the threes to find the thirteens and the number left over was the missing one hundred.

Robot Wars!

Some of our Y5 and Y6 pupils competed in this year’s inter-school Robot Wars competition. Every year we invite the Robot Wars expert in to show us how to make our own robots, to embark on challenges and navigate obstacles. We always invite pupils from other schools in Sheffield to take part too. 

What is particularly exciting, is one of the heavily, armoured robots from the TV show makes an appearance in our school and we can see how complex the real robots are. They are virtually indestructible. 

We were proud to come in 2nd and 3rd place out of all the groups from all the schools taking part.
