Year 5 maths challenge heat 5, on Tuesday 1st March 2022
As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, our Year 5 children compete each year with over 200 schools in the Year 5 Maths challenge. It requires a team of 4 pupils to work together, challenging the group to communicate, negotiate and reason to reach a collective decision. Time limits for questions serve as an extra challenge. Our current Year 5's competed with courage and resilience and achieved highly in both the memory round and the general maths and estimation rounds!
A huge well done to our 8 participants for 2022.
NSPCC Number Day
We were very excited to take part in NSPCC Number Day on Friday 4th February 2022, where we took part in maths activities throughout the day. We raised funds for the NSPCC by holding a Maths themed House Day in which children competed in their teams across the school to earn House Points for their team.
Children dressed in their House Colours and completed number problems in order to earn House Points for their teams. EYFS tackled maths problems hidden around their classroom and had to be the quickest team to hunt down the 9 coloured 'blobs' for their team! A huge well done to our EYFS Frithsden team who came first and banked 400 house points by 9.30am!
Next came Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3 who had to race to the finish line with the support of their Year 6 House Captains. The remainder of KS2 had a challenge on their hands, which saw them answer tricky number problems including having to follow compass directions which led them to hidden objects within their classrooms!
A great day was had by all. A huge thank you as always to everyone who took part and to those who donated money to the NSPCC. Thank you to our Year 6 House Captains Ben, Maisie, Sebastian, Harry and Eve who led their teams brilliantly.
Final House Point totals from the day:
Maths Week England 2021
This year we took part in Maths Week England between the 8th-11th November. Year 2-6 competed on TTRock Stars with other schools across England, within our classes and our school. Throughout the week we took part in a number of maths themed events including finding out about a famous mathematician each day which inspired us to look at how maths is used in the every day world around us.
Maths Open Mornings
Prior to school closures, we opened our classrooms for maths open mornings. We saw parents, children and teachers working together across different areas of the maths curriculum. They worked on practical aspects of maths and brought challenges to life! We loved working collaboratively to solve problems and stretch our thinking.
Our Early Years children invited their parents in for cooking sessions and used fruit pieces to make repeated patterns with their families and our Year 5's used chocolate bars to convert mixed numbers and improper fractions. Year 3 were very busy marking the area and perimeter of the tables and even created their own 3D shapes using nets.
Keep your eyes peeled for the next open morning maths sessions when it is safe for us to do so again.
