Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Day 3 of Math Week


…Sadly the bad weather kept us all inside today but we all still managed to find ways to celebrate maths!


P1-4 got very arty and practised symmetry. The P1s and P2s were using different shapes and colours to create symmetrical patterns on some very lovely butterflies which they then folded over to replicate the pattern on the other half.

Where as the P3/4s practised their symmetry by creating mosaic patterns on the floor and copying them on the other side! It was some very colourful arty maths as you can see from the photos to follow soon! 


P4-7 used the time to see how Maths impacts us daily and how many of us end up using Math in our jobs every day!  We thought of as many different jobs as we could that involved Math in some way and as you can see.. it was most of them! 

We then engaged with the STEM Ambassadors from all around Scotland who had kindly uploaded videos of themselves online describing their jobs and how they use Math on a day to day basis. This was very interesting and we have the opportunity to ask them questions directly so we eagerly await their replies!
