Willow Class have had a maths packed day! From our great sing along of counting songs to our finding and making shapes with our bodies, fun and laughter has been had by all.
The children have taken part in a quiz answering questions about number and shape. They were very good at recognising all the numbers and thinking carefully how to the solve the problems. During the day the children took part in a variety of measuring activities. The Year 1's helped the Jade Emperor find out which visiting animals would fit through his door to come to his New Year party. They measured the door carefully using cubes and then investigated which animals would fit. Foundation stage made Chinese red envelopes and over playtime they were filled up! The children counted how many sweets they had and measured the towers they made with them. They noticed the height of the tower was different to the number of sweets.
Beech Class enjoyed creating their own Maths games. To start with they had to think about the rules of the game which had to include a scoring system.
Once their designs had been drawn up, with a variety of different materials from around the classroom, they got to make the games they had designed. It was incredible watching them come to life.
Afterwards, we evaluated the successes of our designs and what we could improve upon next time.
The children then all took their games into the hall and had the chance to try each of the different ideas out. A fantastic test of their counting skills.
Chestnut class enjoyed some topic based maths, translating their dates of birth into Roman Numerals. They enjoyed playing ‘Who wants to be a millionaire’ and were quick to answer. We spent the afternoon stretching our minds with a range of maths challenges and flexing our muscles with maths archery.
Oak class enjoyed a fun and lively day of Maths challenges and games. We started the day with some maths riddles to solve. We enjoyed a nail biting game of ‘Play your cards right’ and Who wants to be a millionaire. The children worked through a problem solving activity with a mystery number square. We spent the afternoon constructing equilateral triangles for a building competition to construct the tallest or strongest piece.
