For day 1 of Math Week Scotland the P1-4 class got down to some very creative math work this morning! This included some lovely shape dinosaurs from the P1’s and I heard they all did a very good job talking about their dinosaurs and identifying and counting the different shapes in each others. P2 made lovely rainbow clouds showing off their number bonds to 10 and finally, P3/4 made some tasty looking fraction pizzas! As you can see from the photos – the results were fabulous and everyone was very hard at work!
The upper class got stuck into fractions and looked at some equivalent fractions outdoors for the first day. Pupils were challenge to find a whole ‘something’ that they could break into halves and then into quarters and discuss how two quarters were equal to one half. We then extending this even further and set off in pairs to build our very own fraction walls to demonstrate equivalence! The boys and girls got their hands stuck in and made a very good job as you can see in the photos! (despite the drizzle..!)
