P2 Measure Up

The pupils chose to start learning about measure by exploring length and height. They problem solved which measuring tool would be best to measure each item. A ruler for smaller objects and a metre stick or measuring tape for longer or taller objects.

We explored height and length in the playground as well as measuring how far the pupils could jump. This was tricky as many pupils could jump further than a metre!

In the classroom the pupils drew around a friend then measured different parts of their body. They had to write the lengths/height in centimetres (CM).

Outdoor Numeracy

The P1 children have been exploring number formation and creating number lines in our front playground. Theyโ€™ve enjoyed decorating the walls and perfecting their numeral formation. The children have also been looking at ways of counting on and back and setting challenges for each other.

P3 Maths Week #MathsWeekScot

P3 have spent Maths Week Scotland learning about Position and movement.

We have learned new vocabulary to help us give and follow and draw directions.

We then applied this knowledge to program a Beebot robot to move around a grid.

For outdoor learning this week, everyone enjoyed working with their partners to create a ‘treasure hunt,’ whereby we hid 3 objects, then directed our friends to find the ‘treasure.’

P2 Maths Week Scotland #MathsWeekScot

P2 have been exploring 2D shapes and 3D objects and connected this to learning about the artist Paul Klee. They used examples of his work as inspiration for their own artwork.

P2 also went outdoors to explore numbers in the playground. They worked with a partner to answer some numeracy questions related to the playground and create their own question. IPads were used to record some of their answers.
