# Maths is a very fun thing!

Our maths lesson this week in Transition was counting some random object we have in the classroom by using the whiteboards and magnetic numbers. The boys were all Successful Learners and all did extremely well at counting objects, matching numbers and adding up. Well done to all the boys.

# Art and fun in the Sun

On Friday afternoon we enjoyed the sunshine – played some maths games and played with the bubble machine.

We also had carried out some are work – we are making a big snake for our Australian display!!!

# Maths Streaming – Numicon Fun!

* SUCCESSFUL LEARNERS, EFFECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS, RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS *

During Maths streaming, Miss Gemmell’s group tried to complete some problem solving challenges. We used new equipment called numicon that we have in the school.

The pupils loved using the matching boards to try and complete the numicon patterns then the class split into two teams and had a challenge of covering a blank numicon board using the numicon shapes. The teams worked really well together and managed to complete the task!

# Christmas Maths

This morning we were set the challenge of creating a Christmas tree out of different shapes.

# St Andrew’s Day

This morning we did some preparation for St Andrew’s Day. We made some beautiful St Andrew’s Cross Flags, also known as The Saltire, we hand printed some lovely  thistles. Then we used The Saltire, thistle and St Andrew to help with our Maths work – looking at the biggest to the smallest and putting them in order or selecting the biggest or the smallest shape.

# Being creative outdoors.

The Pine Class were looking for shadows today…but one thing was missing?? The SUN!!! But we still had good fun drawing round each other with the chalk.
