Maths Week March 2015


A lot of fun was had during maths week 2015!

All week the children worked on developing their investigation/problem solving skills in class and were involved in games which encouraged them to use their mathematical strategies to calculate totals and scores.


What is problem-solving?

There are many reasons for including problem-solving as an integral part of the maths curriculum.

Well planned problem-solving activities provide opportunities for children to:

  • Apply their mathematical knowledge and skills creatively and flexibly in a wide range of situations;
  • Develop their reasoning and communication skills;
  • Work co-operatively;
  • Develop confidence and independence in their own mathematical ability.

We had Quantum Theatre company in for a play on numeracy: The Calculating Mr One. Everyone appeared to enjoy the play alongside counting and calculating.


The Maths Exhibition at the end of the week show cased the children's problem solving/investigation work.
