Outdoor Maths Lesson!

On Tuesday, we took our Maths lesson to our new Forest School site in search of natural and man-made objects with one or more lines of symmetry. On our way we found the perfect example of a natural symmetrical pattern – a lovely ladybird!

We then took some of our objects back to the classroom to draw their shape and label how many lines of symmetry they had.

Deck the halls with your times tables!

On Friday, the challenge was set for the children in Mr Boynes’s maths group to label the links of a paper chain with their times tables. They had to carefully measure the strips of paper using a ruler before cutting them out, then write their times tables onto the links and see how high they could get!

They obviously couldn’t help but have some fun along the way…

My word! Is that the time?

Mr Boynes’ Maths group have spent the last couple of lessons looking at the time with Mrs Beddington.

As part of their learning they created a ‘human clock’ out on the field and answered problems using it. The hope was that ‘being’ the clock would help them to understand the clock.

Check out our pictures of the experience and comment on what you learnt.

It’s time to learn with Mrs Beddington.
