Countdown champions

In our Maths group, Year 6 were tasked with solving a Countdown challenge. We initially shared a couple of solutions but the children amazed me (and themselves) by continuing to find different solutions to the problem. The board ran out of space they had so many successful ideas! It was lovely to see how excited the children were at finding different solutions and even clapped for each other when a new way was discovered. By the end of the task we had found a whopping 21 solutions! It was a brilliant way to start the lesson and really showed off their impressive problem solving and arithmetic skills.

(Excuse the mess of the board- we were all rushing with excitement to get the methods written down!)
