Mad About Maths Week

Dear Parents/Carers,

During the week beginning Monday 30th January, we will being having a maths week in school and as part of this parents are invited to come and join in. Throughout this week, during maths sessions the children will be focussing on using their maths skills to complete a variety of problem solving and reasoning type activities. There are also a few special events happening to make this a very exciting and special week for the children.

On Monday 30th, Years 1 to 6 will be taking part in a Problem Solving Workshop where the children will be challenged to solve a range of puzzles provided by the Happy Puzzle Company. There will be a chance for parents to see these puzzles and, if you wish, to buy the puzzles in the hall after school.

On Thursday afternoon, starting at 1:45, we would like to invite you all to come in and join your children in their class to play some maths games. These games are often used to help consolidate and support the children’s learning in a fun way that you may wish to continue at home.

After this, there will be tea and coffee served in the hall and an opportunity to have a look at the school’s calculations policy with Ms Vobes.

On Friday 3rd, we are supporting the NSPCC’s Number Day. The children are being asked to come to school dressed up as something within the theme of numbers, whilst they work on specially selected maths activities and investigations. They could come dressed in clothes covered in numbers, dressed as dice or a calculator or any other creative ideas that they think of. We will be collecting donations to support the NSPCC on this day [suggested donation is £1].

We will also be running a school wide competition during the week; take a look at the fabulous prizes!

We hope this will be a really productive week for the children, as they have an opportunity to put all their maths skills and knowledge into practice, and hope that you will be able to join us to make this an enjoyable week at school.

Thank you in advance for your support.
