Last week was Maths Week at St John’s. Children in all years of the school took part in a range of fun maths activities.
Reception children loved exploring numbers up to 10 and thinking about how they can be made in different ways. They especially enjoyed applying this skill to their game of Bingo when they tricked teachers by hiding a number from the number line and giving clues to help them work out which one was missing!
Year 1 went outside and drew ‘adding stories’ on the ground with chalk, played ‘What’s the time Mr Wolf’ and tried to get the highest score in a throwing and catching game with bean bags. The highest score was 9!
Year 2 explored multiplication in practical ways, year 3 used throwing and catching skills to count in different multiples, year 5 collected data and represented it in line graphs and year 6 used 3D shape nets to make their own Greek temples!
It all ‘added up’ to a lot of fun across the school!
