Autumn Maths Day 2022.
Math's Day Spring Term 2022
EYFS and Nursery had a shape and pattern focus.
We made repeating patterns using loose parts, threading necklaces and using card strips.
We found 3D shapes in the outdoor area and named them.
We printed using 3D shapes in the playdough, exploring the 2D shapes that are seen on the faces.
We also used a giant tens frame outdoors to look at number bonds to 10 and added some work to our maths number scrapbook.
Key Stage 1
The children used money and gave change in the class shop. They also looked at halves of different shapes.
Lower Key Stage 2
Year 3 and 4 studied clocks and time. They learnt how to tell the time, then made their own clocks.
The children in the lower juniors had a brilliant day dressing up as guitar heroes and learning their times tables as well.
The day was filled with challenge games on TT rockstars against other classes and with friends. This was followed by lots of quick-fire and respond class games, then recall and memory activities. The children and teachers had lots of fun.
Math's Day Autumn Term 2021
Nursery and Reception...
We focused on 2D shape for Math's Day, especially circles and triangles linking them to the number 1 and 3.
We made shape pictures, cutting and sticking and drawing around 2d shapes.
We fed the shape monsters the correct shapes whilst naming them.
Shape hunt outdoors.
Printing in the playdough with shapes, talking about the properties.
Year 1 and 2...
In KS1 the children had to estimate then check how many cubes were needed to balnce classroom objects and then predict which were 'heavier or lighter'. They also used the symbols < > to write up their observations.
Later the children were able to recognise the value of different coins and organise them in order.
Activities included cutting out coins and ordering from smallest to largest, and then using 5p and 10p coins at Mr Nakhuda’s diner to purchase food while asking for the correct change.
The children also described 2-D shapes by talking about the number of sides and vertices and also described 3-D shapes according to the number and shape of the faces, the number of edges and vertices.
Finally, the children had decide on which paper strips were 'shorter, longer and the same. They then used rulers to measure accurately in centimetres.
Year 3 and 4...
In Lower Juniors the children took part in activities with measure, budgeting, shapes and interpreting data. The children got the opportunity to move aroundthe classes and take part in lots of fun activities.
Year 5 and 6...
The Upper Juniors worked on number: code-breaking and alebraic links, also with money and prices-getting a good deal at the shop. The triangles we studied were: equilateral, isosceles, right-angled and scalene.
Later, the children drew a Vitruvian Man based on their had-span and arm length. This was then multiplied to find wheteher this matched their height.
Math's Day Summer Term 2021
Intack had a Math's enrichment day recently, all lessons being taught outside the classroom. We had fun doing our lessons in the open air and we had the opportunity to work with different teachers (socially distanced) in our Key Stages.
Year 5 and 6 investigated the parts of a circle and the names for these.
The children calculated missing sides in rectangles.
They also searched for different types of angles around the school, worked on degrees in a circle, and half and full turns.
The teacher gave the children a calculation and the children had to use the hop scotch to show the answer.
The children were given a multiplication calculation and the children had to show the answer using objects they had found outdoors. The children had to make Roman numerals using the straws and lolly sticks.
Y1 and Y2 children had a shop, the children were recognising money, reading amounts, making amounts by combining coins and finding different ways to make the same amount.
Then they had made potions- the children had to follow a recipe using capacity vocabulary and measurements.
After that they created a human clock, the children used their body to show the hands of the clock. They drew their own clocks using chalk.
Intack children had a treat, when former B.D.O. world champion Scott Waites came in to play darts and show us his brilliant mental maths skills. Scott set up a dart board for a whole school assembly in the hall and played darts against children from all year groups. He then challenged the Year 6 and Year 4 classes to a game of arrows, where the children learnt addition and subtraction methods in a darts game from 501 down.
A great time was had by everyone and we wish Scott good luck for the future!
