The Reasoner of the Week is a child in each class that has been recognised for their mathematical reasoning skills. Reasoning enables children to make use of all their other mathematical skills and so reasoning could be thought of as the 'glue' which helps mathematics makes sense. They may be able to; follow a line of enquiry, explain relationships, develop/explore an argument or justify/prove an idea using precise mathematical language.
Each week, one child from each class will be chosen and presented with a certificate during our celebration assembly.
Videos of the 'Reasoner of the Week' in action will be regularly uploaded in this folder.
Bram - Week ending 5/2/16
Bram was making links as we learnt about Roman Numerals in Maths this week. He made the link between 'C' representing 100 and the link to century. He also linked millenium to 'M' in Roman Numerals which represents 1000. Following this pattern, Bram thought 10 should be represented by 'D' for decade instead of X. Well done Bram.
Oliver - Week ending 29/1/16
Oliver demonstrated excellent number sense when comparing numbers with 2 decimal places. He used bead strings to explain why each number was greater or smaller than another, referring to tenths and hundredths. Brilliant reasoning Oliver!
