NSPCC National Number Day
1st February 2019
We have had an amazing time today while celebrating National Number Day. All across the school, the children have been wearing lovely costumes (Thank you!) and taking part in fun activities. See below for how the number activities progress as you move up through the year groups:
Nursery - practised recognising their numbers by spotting them in all sorts of places in the classroom and by painting giant numbers and making number crowns.
Reception - made abstract number art in a range of materials and decorating their classrooms with paper chains that the children have ordered from 0 to 20.
Year 1 - played Bingo with a difference! Instead of calling out the numbers, Mr Metcalf called out clues to the numbers (such as what number is made from 2 tens and 3 ones).
Year 2 - completed a carousel of fun number games - They played some games with their friends and some games on their own.
Year 3 - linked number day to their current topic by running a Stone Age Café in the morning (counting money) and then baking Stone Age bread (measuring for the recipe) in the afternoon.
Year 4 - completed lots of fun maths puzzles such as emoji missing numbers and magic squares (where all of the rows, columns, and diagonals add up to the same number!).
Year 5 - designed their very own board game and added mathematical challenges for the players to answer throughout the game. They also used Anglo-Saxon runes to create mathematical codes using all four operations to see whether their friends could crack the code.
Year 6 - solved metacognitive number puzzles, such as Suguru and Suduko and sorting themselves into categories based on the number that they have been assigned for the day.
