The compass maths group have been organising a birthday for Mrs H's bear. He is turning 10.
They made birthday hats for the guests to wear. Each hat needed to have 10 shapes on it. The boys worked out how many different ways they could make 10.
Nick had 6 diamonds + 2 hexagons + 2 triangles= 10 shapes.
Declan made a birthday cake for the bear with candles.
He used 4 green + 2 blue + 3 Yellow + 1 red = 10 candles
Lucas made a cake too.
He used 5 green + 4 yellow + 1 red = 10 candles
We have been making 10 lots of different ways.
