Monday 23rd September  – Family Numeracy and Maths Homework Challenge

Being numerate helps us to function responsibly in everyday life and contribute effectively to society. It increases our opportunities within the world of work and establishes foundations which can be built upon through lifelong learning. Numeracy is not only a subset of mathematics; it is also a life skill which permeates and supports all areas of learning, allowing young people access to the wider curriculum.    (Education Scotland)

 

Monday 23rd September  – Family Numeracy and Maths Homework Challenge

Families can choose one activity (or more if you wish) from the grid and work on this together over the next two weeks.  How you record and share your homework is up to you! There are some suggestions on the grid but please feel free to be as inventive as you wish.  This homework will last two weeks. On Friday 4th October, the eldest child in each family should bring in their family homework and the pupils will get a chance to share their activity with the school community.  The homework should be carried out as a family and each activity can be simplified or extended to allow everyone to take part.  There are lots of real life challenges to allow our pupils to see the benefit numeracy and maths has on our everyday life.  These activities are designed to be fun, active and engaging for all our learners.  It will not only promote their numeracy, but it will also develop their problem solving, creativity and collaboration skills.

This week in P7, we have been learning the acronym Bounce Back in Health and Well being.

In maths the Archimedes have been learning and revising rounding to 1,2,3 and 4 decimal places.

The Fibonacci have been revising 24 hour and 12 hour time am and pm.

Pythagoras have been learning algebra. We have also been practicing our times tables by doing a new game, Speed Table Challenge .

Today it is drop dead Friday and the whole class  acted like they were dead at 2.00pm.  The reason for this is  that it is Friday the 13th and a full moon! Lucky Mrs Hussain!

Overall we’ve had a very good week and we are looking forward to the next one.
