Maths Week 2016


Ashlands Primary school have celebrated another successful and fun maths week. The theme of the week was ‘The Art of Maths’ where Maths skills were taught and applied through many other subjects. Basic skills were practiced throughout the week and problems solved. The new resources, recently purchased by the school to encourage the children to use their logic and reasoning skills, were enjoyed by all the children across school. Upper Key stage 2 enjoyed a visit from the 7puzzle company. Throughout the week children baked, investigated, played puzzles and games, used the local woods and looked at pattern in shape, art, poetry and music. The children used the outdoor environment to complete trials, make art work and measure. Older children made different themed maths games for the younger children to play and enjoyed a session teaching them how to play it.
