Education Week In The Grade 1/2
The Grade 1 and 2 classes had a Maths focus during Education Week.
PROFESSOR MATHS TRAVELLING SHOW
The children were fortunate to have a visit from the Professor Maths Travelling Show. Professor Maths had so many fun Maths games for the children to play. They worked in groups of four and moved around as many activities as they could. There were shape puzzles, addition fishing, addition ten pin bowling, jigsaws, mazes, cube building and lots, lots more. The children learnt to work as a team in order to solve problems. They discovered that the first answer is not always the best answer. It was great to see all children having a go and persevering when the activity was challenging. The children were very excited to solve the special challenge tasks because they got to wear Professor Maths wigs as their reward.
MATHS IN MY LUNCH BOX
Thank you to the parents who put a special effort into preparing a special lunch with a Maths focus. The children thought about all the Maths in their lunchboxes. They found lots of different things like the shapes of their containers, sandwiches and fruit, fractions, the numbers and weight on food packaging, the size of their food and money we could spend at the canteen.
Grade 1 and 2 discovered that there is Maths everywhere.
