We have two maths ambassadors from our year 6 class. Their main role is to promote maths across the school through a number of tasks. They work closely with the maths subject leader.
Meet the Ambassadors
I’m Piper and I loved fantasy when I was little because of what it brings - it is something that makes people dream so when I started Booth wood I wanted to build with blocks. But one thing I needed for that was maths. I needed to know how many blocks it would take and how wide it had it be. That is when I started to think that building giant castles or houses was great but I wanted to learn and to not just build anything. A few years later, I was in year five doing a maths test when I started to realise that I like maths more then English; I was better at maths so it became my favourite lesson.
In my spare time I like to play Minecraft and, if it’s not raining, I like to play football in my garden. If I’m bored, I like to read a book.
Why I like maths
I like maths because it makes me think in a different way by using my imagination to help me with questions that make me think.
My top tips for maths
If you’re doing division with big numbers, make sure to use the formal written method (bus stop) and if you are doing adding use the column method. If you are adding more then two numbers, you can still use column method. If you are subtracting a number from 2,000,000, take one from it and the other number - it will make it a lot easier to subtract as there are not any exchanges to do.
I’m the maths ambassador because I’m capable of looking after the schools maths. I adore maths: it helps everyone to learn to problem solve. I like to look for a challenge. Maths games like Prodigy also help me with homework and in school learning. TTRS is a game that crucially intervened with my times tables knowledge .
As part of my role, I understand what the younger ones are learning about in their lessons. We all start off with place value. I am in year 6 in which I have to bring back all I have learned about in the past 5 years.
