Year 6 – World Maths Day
As part of ‘World Maths Day’, children went outside the classroom to participate in an active and very competitive maths lesson!
Each pupil had a player card consisting of a variety of numbers. Mr Paton then called out various statements relating to the cards, for example: a square number ‘greater than’ 30, a cubed number, a prime number and a mixture of multiples. Each pupil matching the statement ran to the middle and returned with a piece of small PE equipment from the centre. The team with the most equipment at the end, won.
The activity helped to reinforce key vocabulary and mathematical facts. Later this week, pupils will present their ‘player card’ data onto pie and bar charts.
