Maths Day

Yesterday the whole school took part in a wonderful Maths day. With the opportunity to take part in so many different types of maths activities, the children had an amazing time practising their maths skills. Mathletics was, once again, very well used and it was good to see how board games, word problems and mental arithmetic activities were helping children to develop a real grasp of the key concepts. Well done everyone, another great curriculum day! Watch the action unfold and listen to what the children have learnt…
