WINNER FOR SPARK THE MATHS OF FIFTY by Nathan G-K, age 7 Five lots of fi fty things Five ways maths can bring 5 x 50 to get the 5 in the 250 words ring Five kings to birthday sing 5 x 10 25 x 2 Who said maths isn't for you? Two digits remain from 16 x 3 (48) I really feel maths is for me 48 + 2 46 + 4 Another way to open the door 89 – 39 Isn’t 50 very fi ne 50 – 0 (zero) 50 is a super-hero! Better not do take away Cause this is a time for party and play So if you divide 100 by 2 You'll get the number for you So we looked at Addition Division Subtraction Multiplication Potential Plus’ 50 Celebration HANNAH SAID The Maths of Fift y by Nathan sticks to the theme and really focuses on the number fift y. Not only is it well- structured but is also well written and is an interesting read.  Also, it rhymes! Who doesn’t love a bit of numeracy? IGNIS 5
