Maths Madness

Number day 2.jpg

On Friday 2nd February the children took part in NSPCC Number Day raising awareness of Maths whilst collecting some money for a very worthwhile cause. The curriculum was collapsed for the morning and the children took part in a range of activities that were all related to number.

I really enjoyed the challenges Mr Elliott set us on the playground answering mental maths questions.

The children in Class 1 and 2 joined together to play board games, make a human number line and try and get the highest score on a target board. In Class 3, the children wore football shirts and solved various problems such as making the biggest possible number. Mr Elliott designed a quiz for the Class 4 children, and they had to race to get the answers. They then took this back to class and played a challenging game on count down.

My favourite part of the day was making a human number line, it was so much fun!

Mrs Lafferty, Maths Coordinator, said ‘This has been a fantastic day to raise the children’s awareness of Maths and help a worthwhile cause! The children were all extremely engaged in a wide range of activities across the school.’
