Today in Maths Year 2 had a very tricky problem to solve. They were asked to place the numbers 1-6 in the circles so that each number was the difference between the two numbers just below it. There were lots of different ways to do this. The children found it difficult to begin with but kept trying and soon began to find lots of possibilities.
What fantastic problem solving in Year 2! The children were asked to share 15 pennies into 4 bags so that they could pay any sum of money from 1p to 15p without opening any of the bags. They needed to find out how many pennies could be in each of the bags. They tried lots of different possibilities until they found a way that worked.
