World Maths Day in Year 2
Friday 9th March | 4 comments
It has been a week of maths learning, starting with the staff on Monday and including our World Maths Day on Wednesday.
We had a fantastic day on Wednesday celebrating World Maths Day.
We spent the first part of the morning solving maths puzzles on the theme of African animals. Here are some of our solutions:
We then had a Mathletics Assembly with Mrs Fisher:
We were really proud of the five children who were awarded wrist bands for being in Farfield’s top ten of high scores.
Here we are hard at work:
In the afternoon we completed our Mathletics challenges. This was great practise for learning our number facts. By year 2 we hope that most children have a really good grasp of these to enable them to make links and support their calculation. For example, if you know that 3 + 4 = 7, you can derive the answers to 30 + 40, 23 +4, 7-4 and so many more!
Finally, linked to our Africa topic, we learned about a traditional game from Kenya called Shisima. We looked at the picture of the game to try to work out the rules. Then we made our own game boards and played the game. We hope you are enjoying playing it at home!
Have a fantastic weekend!
