This term on a Friday the children have been learning how to work as a group to solve a range of maths word problems. They have the opportunity to manipulate materials and record their thinking in a variety of ways. The idea of Gallery walks is to move around each problem and spend 5 minutes figuring out a a solution. There are a range of answers using the numbers available or children can come up with their own number sentences. This allows them to work in a small supportive group and gives them the confidence to find other ways to solve a problem.
