Outdoor Numeracy

The P1 children have been exploring number formation and creating number lines in our front playground. They’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.

Road Numbers With P4 #MathsWeekScot

P4 hit the road but more with Numberjacks than Jack this week. As part of our work for maths week scotland we were surveying traffic in Dalry.

We were counting different vehicles, vehicles per minute and comparing volumes of traffic.

Maybe you could carry this on on walks to school or the shops? How many cars on the way to the shops and from the shops? Which is bigger?
