10 minutes to win it!

Yesterday in maths we played a new game called Ten Minutes to Win It!

We work in pairs and roll two dice as many times as we can for 5 minutes. When we roll the dice we say the number sentence and the answer and our partner writes it down quickly! When 5 minutes is up we swap over and the other person rolls the dice for 5 minutes! At the end of the 10 minutes, we all add up how many number sentences we have and make a class total!

Yesterday we wrote 677 addition number sentences in 10 minutes!

We couldn’t believe it! We were so excited! We have made a challenge for ourselves for the next time we play this game! We are aiming to make 700 number sentences in 10 minutes! If we meet the challenge we have decided on a class reward of watching a movie! We can’t wait to play it again to keep improving our quick number recall!

Go Grade 3/4!
