NSPCC Number Day 2020
Nursery completed lots of number-based activities, introducing children to the numerals in different contexts and finished the day with a number song disco!
Reception made number hats and played a selection of number-related games, which covered recognising numerals, matching amounts and numerals.
Year 1 celebrated number day by completing number themed art, PE and ICT. They also took part in some extra number challenges.
Year 2 played a game of ‘who wants to be mathionaire’ and then did some practical investigations using the multiplication skills we have been developing within our lessons.
Year 3 took part in a Mary Anning themed code breaking maths lesson which linked to their learning in Science. They worked out the value of a range of 'curiosities' and then used these to solve various maths calculations. Who will be the chief code-breaker?!
Year 4 carried out two investigations to answer the following questions: Can taller people jump further? and Is your arm span the same as your height? Children designed their own methods for finding the answers, recording and presenting the information and we analysed which methods are the most accurate.
Year 5 designed playground games for the KS1 and KS2 yards using chalk to create their games on the ground for the whole school to play! They also carried out a fraction treasure hunt.
Year 6 spent time unwinding the mysteries of Suguru: simple to understand, complex to solve! Literally meaning 'number groups' in Japanese, solvers aimed to fill a grid with numbers. Using algebra, the children determined the highest value digit that can fill each cell before arranging them so that no identical digits touch horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The children also explored the significance of the numbers in their lives and created a unique poem called ‘My Life in Numbers’.
