National Numeracy Day

The school celebrated National Numeracy Day on Wednesday.

Lime Class

For National Numeracy Day, Lime Class children enjoyed using maths to count out different moves and steps for a dance with Strictly star and National Numeracy ambassador Katya Jones. Katya broke a very fast, complicated dance into slow, small and easy steps. The children practised these at Level 1, 2, 3 and 4. Finally they could do the dance at Level 5! Katya’s message to the children is that if they are struggling with a maths problem, they can break it into small steps. In this way, they can overcome problems and achieve great things.

 

 

 Larch Class

On National Numeracy Day on the 17th May, Larch Class made up and performed a Maths Rap. They thought about their own views of Maths and the added a bit of rhyming, before we created a whole class rap.

Mojo Mojo we try our best,

so here’s our Maths Rap, enjoy the rest

 

When you’re learning to add, you don’t need to get mad

If you are stuck on time, you could try and eat a lime

When learning about halves, we can try and have a laugh

 

Here we go – okay- 17th May

Base 10, counters, numbers lines, bricks

Stones, cones, leaves and sticks

Working together we will be fine

If we have problems, use a number line

 

If finding it hard to divide, ask a teacher, please don’t hide

Here we go – okay- 17th May

Celebrating National Numeracy Day

 

When counting out some money, remember to ask for help from mummy

When you are doing your sums, would it be

good to play the drums

We play with money, we set up shop and it’s so funny

 

Maths maths we’re not afraid

We try our best and show we are brave

 

Here we go – okay- 17th May
