Maths week is being celebrated this year from Monday October 15th to Friday October 19th where the children will have great fun engaging in mathematical activities and games throughout the week. The children put great effort into designing Maths Week 2018 posters which were on display throughout the school.
Children will participate in maths games, maths stations, answered mathematical puzzles and riddles as well as participate in various indoor and outdoor maths trails around the school.
3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th classes will attend the 'Murderous Maths' presentation by Kjartan Poskitt in the Helix and DIT. Kjarten is the author of the 'Murderous Maths' series of books (link). It is an interactive workshop full of mathematical trucks and it is very enjoyable. 6th class also have the opportunity to visit Microsoft and participate in the 'DreamSpace Experience'. The aim of this digital skills experience is for the children to be inspired by technology at an early age giving them critical thinking and problem solving skills.
On Friday, all children will dress up in clothes that have a mathematical theme and there no doubt there were some very imaginative costumes, if last year is anything to go by.
Also on Friday, the children in the junior building will engage in various maths stations and board games in the hall.
A very enjoyable day and week for all!
