World Maths Day

World Maths Day 2013

 

On Wednesday 7th March 2013,

 Janet Duke took part in World Maths Day.

It was a very exciting day.

Every class played an online game to test their mathematical knowledge against children all over the world.

Miss Hooks gave prizes to the highest scoring class in each phase. The results are:

Year 6: Peridot

Year 4/5: Moonstone

Year 2/3: Onyx

Year 1/FS: Pearl

Every class that took part was given a special certificate. With special recognition to Sapphire, Moonstone and Sunstone who received a distinction certificate for completing all challenges at 5 levels.

We also invited parents and governors to join in the celebrations. In the afternoon, parents and governors joined in with mathematical activities in our classes. Those with siblings in the school got to work together in the hall where they were able to take part in practical and fun maths!

We would like to thank all those parents who attended the day (260 children had parents to work with, to make it such a success!)

 

Visitors on the day commented on the great 'buzz' about maths around school and many discovered how fun maths can be! It provided an opportunity to celebrate the progress we have made so far, and inspire future collaboration toward our end goal of raising the attainment of all our pupils in maths.
