Logan has made so much progress in Maths this year. He always participates in lessons and tries his best. He has been trying really hard with his fact fluency this half term and has really impressed me with his mental Maths skills. He is able to use concrete resources such as counters and cubes to help him with problem solving. He is growing in confidence and we are very proud of him. Well done Logan, keep up the hard work.

Maple Class – Year 5 Mrs Unitt 


I cannot believe the development in Finley’s maths confidence this year. He has really developed his mathematical understanding and is able to apply it to a range of different contexts. At the beginning of the year, Finley would rely heavily on others but now he is an independent and effective learner who is able to demonstrate his good understanding of concepts through using mathematical vocabulary in class discussions. I am very proud of the progress that he has made.  


Hawthorns Class - Year 5 – Mr Dallow Ghazl


I am so proud of Ghazl. She gives 100% in every maths lesson, and this is really paying off. She is eager to answer questions throughout the lesson and is always willing to help others. She has made great progress when multiplying and dividing and has now mastered the ‘bus stop’ method. Keep up the hard work Ghazl! 


Beech class – Year 6 Mr Hales 


Olly is a fine mathematician and he works well in all areas of maths. There have been instances though in the past where Olly has been prone to making little mistakes that have had a bearing on the outcomes of his answers. I am really pleased to see that Olly has been striving hard to correct these and I am seeing a concerted effort with his number formation and showing all his working out which has drastically improved his accuracy. Well done Olly. 


Birch Class – Year 6 Mrs Webb 


Lillie is fantastic at maths; I only wish she had as much confidence in herself as I doShe has been working hard all year to improve her arithmetic scores and is now achieving scores off 33 out of 40, which for this time in the year is amazingHer depth of knowledge is also seen when working with fractionsI love seeing the big smile on her face when we are tackling difficult concepts in maths, and she realises that she has got itShe is more frequently attempting the more challenging questions and is finding much successI am really proud of you LillieKeep up the good work.
