Maths

Today we are going to have the next lesson about estimation. Remember ignore the dates etc. at the beginning.

Today the teacher explains the importance of the children being able to talk and explain their reasoning.

There is a short task at the end which shows 3 pictures for the children to have a go at estimating and explaining their thinking.
