Last Friday, some of us went to the James Young Cluster Numeracy Festival at the Crofthead Centre.
Firstly, back in class, we decided to split ourselves into two groups. One group focused upon The Scottish Maths Challenge and the other group focused upon Numeracy Word Problems. Next, we decided what information we were going to include on our stalls. We had to look back at our previous work and decide which examples demonstrated our knowledge and understanding of Numeracy and Mathematics. We also made up folders so people could read what we had been doing. Finally, we got large boards and presented our work for others to see.
At the festival, it was extremely busy. We had teachers, parents and pupils from other Primary and High Schools. They asked us lots of questions about our learning – we even had a woman whose children went to Bellsquarry and she was glad that we were still working as hard.
It was a great way to spend an afternoon talking about our learning – Mr Hunter even bought us all a bag of crisps for our efforts!
