Welcome Maths Monkeys!
The children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 all had a special Maths assembly last week, where they were given a class Maths Monkey. Maths Monkey will help the children develop their mathematical reasoning and problem solving skills. Maths Monkey poses questions and theories to the children during their Maths lessons, and the children have to answer saying if he is right or wrong, explaining why. For example, in Reception this week the children have been learning about doubling, halving and sharing. Maths Monkey said "You can share 11 sweets out equally between two people". The children had fun working out if he was right or wrong, and explaining their thinking.
