World Maths Day

On March 23rd we celebrated World Maths Day in school.

In the Early Years and KS1 we chose a book and shared it with the children.  We discussed how number was used within the stories. e.g. Squash and a Squeeze, The Enormous Turnip, 1 is a snail and 10 is a crab. 

It created lots of discussion and all the children were very enthusiastic. We discussed the use of mathematical language and patterns within the stories. Ronnie in Reception said “there’s so many ways to count to 10 when you can add more than 2 numbers, you can add 4,2,2 and 2”.  Lucas in Year 1 said “I noticed that 7 people helped pull the enormous turnip.  I counted in 2s but it is an odd number so there was one left over without a friend.”

In Key Stage 2 children completed maths challenges around number. They worked in pairs or within small groups and were then given the opportunity to complete a maths game, The Escape Room, to solve different mathematical clues in order to unlock the passcode to access the map.

Year 3 children said “We worked in groups answering lots of different questions to reveal a digit for our passcode.” Children from upper Key Stage 2 completed Mathletics throughout the day, competing against other children across the country.

Early Years

Y1VM & Y1/2WC

Year 2

In Year 2 we listened to the story ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’ by Julia Donaldson. We discussed how many people and animals came into the house and how many left the house throughout the story. Then we used our addition skills to work out how many legs were in the house. This was tricky because the goat had fleas and the cow had flies!
