Band 1: Marvellous Maths Creative Week

This week, the children in years 1 and 2 have been enjoying a ‘Marvellous Maths’ week. They have been learning about how maths is all around us, every day, in lots of things that we do! We have enjoyed combining maths with some creative activities to show how lines, shapes and pattern play an important part in art and design, and have used problem solving and logic skills in order to crack codes and solve mysteries!


The children wrote some maths themed acrostic poems in English and enjoyed using some real-life maths in order to bake their own domino biscuit, which we hope they enjoy eating this evening! They read a book called ‘How Many Legs?’ and used this to create some very interesting calculations. They also used a book called ‘Inch by Inch’ to inspire some alternative measuring activities! Thank you so much to all the parents who were able to make a donation towards our enrichment activity, the children enjoyed the Lego challenge workshop, where they were tasked with making and designing a number of different vehicles and objects that help to connect all areas of the world.


Today, we were amazed at all the representations of number that we saw in the children’s dress up costumes, thank you so much for all the effort and imagination that went into them; we are so lucky to be working with such a supportive community! Our final thank you is to all the parents who were able to volunteer some of their time in order to pop in and read a maths themed story to the children. The children (and staff) have had a brilliant week!
