Chalking Letters**
*Today in class 7's math lesson we used compass directions to make chalk marks on the playground. We had no idea what shapes the instructions would make until we had finished, but we discovered that we were chalking out capital letters. It was great fun in the sun.*

Creative Maths in Class7**
*This morning in maths cl7 were set a challenge involving trying to work out how many 1m2 carpet tiles would be needed to cover the floor in the new hall. After a bit of thinking about how we might work this out, we headed to the hall and began to discover just how big the hall floor was... At the end of the lesson (and after a lot of measuring) we worked out that we would need 140 1m2 carpet tiles to cover the floor.*

Creating fraction word problems in maths**
*This morning my maths group created some amazing fraction word problems on whiteboards. We took some pictures to remember their questions - can you work out the answers to any of these problems? (Some of these are a one step problem, some are two step) George asked: "Josh has 25kg of snow in his garden. He uses 1/5 to make a snowman. How much snow has he used?" Katie asked: "Mrs Parr has 16 cakes. She gives 1/2 to Katie. How many does she have left?". How many rings does she get?" Molly asked: "Leon has 50 rings and he gives 1/5 to Molly. How How many does she get?" Owen asked: "Zak had 40 cookies. He had eaten 1/4 of them. How many did he eat?" EvieT asked: "Freya has 28 lollies. She sells 1/4. How many does she have left?"" Leon asked: "Rosy has 25 puppies. She feeds 1/5 of them. How many were fed?" Zachary asked: "Zachary has 15 video games. he throws out 1/3 of them. How many does he have left?" Ellie asked: "Sammi has 20 hats. He sells 1/5 of them. How many does he sell?" Luke asked: "Brendon has 15 sweets. he gives 1/3 to Cole. How many does he have left?" ...and finally, Fred asked a tricky question: "Tommie has 500 marbles. Tommi sells 1/5. How many marbles does he have left?"*
