Count down to the Wonder of Number!
Helping children to understand that Maths is an important life skill is key to motivating them to learn, as well as making it enjoyable! From the 25 February until the 1 March, every pupil will take part in a theme week on the ‘Wonder of Number.’
Pupils will discover Maths in a broad range of subjects from Art, Music and Science to History, Geography and IT and have a lot of fun in the process! They will see a play by Hobgoblin Theatre Co on ‘The History of Maths’, take part in Maths quizzes, dress up for the day in their ‘One’sies’, run a tray sale to practice handling money, decorate t-shirts for their ‘Rock Bottom’ show and make alternative snakes and ladders games.
There will be a QR code trail, the opportunity to use sphero robots and program Blue-Bots (the new Bee-Bot robot with a Bluetooth connection) and Upper School will experience number via Virtual Reality (VR) goggles.
Headmistress, Mrs Rose adds: “We hope the ‘Wonder of Number’ theme week experience instills a love of Maths in our pupils and creates many memorable experiences that will stay with them for life.”
