Problem of the Day 2020

by Mr Hughes

Every day in March, White Rose Maths will be publishing word problems and puzzles for schools across the country to try and solve. It would be fantastic if Old Moat could join in! 

The Problem of the Day for Years 1 & 2 are in red, and the problems for Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 are in blue. How many can you solve? 

I will put some problems up on the blog during March and I'm sure your teachers will ask you to solve a few in class. Good luck!

World Maths Day - Wednesday, 4th March 2020

by Mr Hughes

On Wednesday 4th March, we will be celebrating World Maths Day at Old Moat.

The theme for this year is 'Maths is Everywhere', learning all about how Maths is a very important part of our lives and how useful good Maths skills are for our future jobs. As part of the fun, you can dress up in a number or shape themed outfit, or wear clothes that have numbers, patterns or shapes on them, to school on Wednesday. 

In preparation, why don't you try some games and puzzles?

Multiplication Quiz!

by Mr Hughes

Learning our multiplication tables and facts is very important - espescially when we get to Years 5 and 6!

You can use this to practice multiplication tables at home. Click in the blue box and type the number you would like to practice. If you know your multiplication tables up to 12 x 12, you can type in bigger numbers like 13 or 18 to practice counting in multiples of different numbers.
