Maths of the Day

We are continuing to inspire, motivate and engage our pupils in active learning! Maths of the Day further embeds our ‘mastery’ and ‘deepening of skills and understanding’ approach to Maths; our children will have daily ‘active’ maths lessons, which embed, reinforce and develop their mathematical understanding in an active and engaging way.

The main aims of ‘Maths of the Day’:

It complements our existing curriculum incredibly well by continuing to: raise attitudes to Maths; raise attainment; increase levels of physical activity; inspire and motivate all pupils; improve confidence, self-esteem and behaviour of all pupils; and promotes a healthy lifestyle.

We have a '3 in a Row' activity based on place value: ordering and comparing numbers and there is the 'Number Spider' activity too, where the children have to look at as many different ways they could make a given target number.




Alfie led learning today in Maths of the Day- he demonstrated and taught other children how to solve the magic number square. His mathematical vocabulary and explanations were detailed and excellent- well done Alfie!
