Our Mathematician of the Week did some amazing estimating when trying to count the jellybeans in the jar. Its hard to make a sensible estimate rather than a silly guess when there are lots of small objects but our Mathematician was able to do it.

You’re right it’s not been that long since our Writer of the Week last won this award. He has continued his hard work and kept on building his confidence into a second week and Miss Deakin noticed his hard work. What a fabulous job!

How many children fit in the box?

We’ve been learning about capacity at school. In our Maths lesson, Mrs Wales brought in a huge box. We first had to think what it would be good to fill the box with to find out how big it was.

Then we tried to estimate how many children we thought would fit before we started to find out. Some children thought there would be 10 children in the box. Some said there would be 20.

It was lots of fun finding out how many children fitted. Which estimate do you think will be correct?

Thats a lot of children all in one box! It was a bit of a squeeze!
