    Maths - Problem Solving

    Posted by Miss L Bruford
    Year 5 have been problem solving in maths today involving a Deca tree. The children had to find out what a Deca Tree is and then work out how many leaves there will be after the woodcutter has cut off a trunk, a branch, a twig and leaves. There were many approaches to this, however, the children’s continued efforts and perseverance were commendable. Well done Year 5!
