Maths Week in Key Stage 2!

We have had a lovely maths week in KS2. After a very busy half term we decided to link our maths week to our end of topic VE day party. We started the week by making soup with our Chair of Governors Rob Brett. We were supposed to go and visit his allotment to learn about ‘growing our own’ and Dig for Victory but the rain ruined this plan. Instead, Rob brought his own vegetables up to school and taught us how to make Minestrone soup. We all had a go at cooking and learnt about how important ‘growing your own’ was during rationing.

For the rest of the week we have been thinking about how to best organise our VE day party (invitations to follow!). We applied our knowledge of symmetry to designing tablecloths and we completed table plans which would allow us to seat everyone and our guests comfortably. We used the maths book ‘Spagetti and Meatballs’ as the basis for our problem solving work- first we had to help Mrs. Comfort seat her family before thinking of our own plans.

We also completed the current Ombersley maths trail and wrote our own, updated version for Ks1. We hope they’ve enjoyed doing it!

Our Maths lesson with Parents

On Thursday 15th November we invited our parents to join in with our maths lesson.  We had a fantastic time giving directions using the 8 compass points.  We had to try and beat each other to give directions using the least amount of moves.  Thannk you to all of the parents for attending, we look forward to seeing you again next term.

Maths Morning

On Wednesday 28th November we invited our Mums and Dads into school for a maths lesson. Lots of parents came and we had a very busy lesson showing them the different ways that we learnt about numbers. We played games, used number lines and tried to solve a tricky puzzle! Thank you to all the parents who attended, we loved having you and will see you again next term.

Maths Morning

More maths! This week the parents of Year 2 were invited to come and join their children for a maths lesson, to see what fun maths is! We were focusing on problem solving and the children impressed the parents with their mental maths strategies. We played Count Me in, worked out which decorations to put on the tree, how many different outfits the snowman could pick from and different ways the snowman could pay for his party food. The children all enjoyed working with their parents and some of the parents impressed us with their mathematical knowledge too! Thank you to all the parents who came.We hope you enjoyed it.
