The children were challenged to work in groups to find different ways to ‘make 8’, and also find ways that others wouldn’t have chosen! The ‘maths talk’ once they got under way was fabulous, with many of the children testing ideas and asking ‘what if...’, some even were beginning to work systematically. They showed a good understanding of being able to manipulate addition and subtraction, though were less confident with the other operations and so were given a challenge to spot the pattern, using multiples of 8!

This is praise indeed from the main man in primary maths education. It started with an investigation of his about using square numbers to find other facts which a child demonstrated below and then moved to another child applying it for decimals!!

Mighty Maths Day 2

On Friday 12th February, the children enjoyed their second Mighty Maths Day. They solved algebraic puzzles, made maths cakes, invited parents in to share work with them, and took part in a variety of fun activities. The day also raised a total of £179.83 for the NSPCC.

Mighty Maths Day 1

Friday 23rd of October was 'Mighty Maths Day' in school - and what a day it was!

The children looked fantastic in their Maths themed costumes, and everyone joined in with the fun. Key Stage 2 staff dressed up as dominoes and Key Stage 1 staff looked brilliant as 'Team Numicon'

The Happy Puzzle Company brought in lots of activities to stretch our brains and develop our problem solving skills. All over school children played games, did practical activities linked to Maths, and our Key Stage 2 children made their own estimation stations.
