Each class’ maths ambassador came together to say what they would like (or not like) from the maths week and staff were given an extensive list of suggestions including baking, competitions and designing outdoor maths games!
As you can see from the photographs and work the week was a great success!
There was a range of active maths activities that happened throughout the week. Some of these were; a local maths trail, orienteering, baking (measuring), designing maths games for younger children, designing games on the computer, directing Bee Bots, outdoor maths games, taste testing to support statistics, a trip to Eureka to support measure and money, shape work and escape rooms! A visit from Tagtiv8 to support maths learning outside the classroom rounded off a fantastic week!
A lot of cross curricular maths work was going on and children were making links with previous learning. There was also a whole school TT Rockstar battle.
The winning class of the battle were Year 4 Yew in a very close final hour against Year 3 Apple! By the end of the week the top three players across school each received an outdoor maths game prize for their class.
We all had great fun!
As part of our ‘Maths is fun’ morning this half term Year 5 have been doing some codebreaking using their maths skills. This has linked to their curriculum work.
They worked in groups to crack different codes including co-ordinates, letter scrambles, pigpen ciphers, mathematical calculations. See some of the photos of the children cracking the codes and working collaboratively.
The children in Year 2 have been consolidating their learning of tens and ones and finding sequences of numbers. They had to hunt for numbers hidden around the playground and then put them in order to count and see what sequence they were going up in.
Look at the great part-whole models the children made using conkers and sticks to represent tens and ones.
Hedgehog buns linked to habitats.
Making structures from newspaper using mathematical shapes and DT skills to build an Eiffel tower as tall as they can!
Victorian investigations and designing games based around the book ‘Street Child’ set in Victorian London.
