'Masters of Maths' 

Half Term Challenge!

I'm rubbish at maths!

I can't do maths!

Maths is boring!

Do you know anyone who says these things?

Maybe that someone is you!

Well, we need your help to change this negative Maths mindset because maths is all around us and we use it every single day!

We need everybody to help celebrate how important and fun maths can be!

Your mission is to take photos of your most challenging and creative maths at home...

You might:

  • Get cooking in the kitchen, using measure and fractions.
  • Treasure hunt to see how many examples of maths you can find at home or outside. 
  • Create your own maths game, poster or quiz.
  • Create your own rhyme or song about an area of maths.
  • Crack a tricky problem or puzzle to demonstrate your resilience! 

The opportunities are endless!!!

If you can also have a think of what you love most about maths and send those ideas in to your teachers too, that would be great.

Send any photos/ quotes to your class teachers on Dojo before 26th February and we will put them on the maths page of the school website to celebrate you as a 'Master of Maths!'

Get thinking Mathematicians - we can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

We Are Mathematicians!

Together, we can build a whole new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress.

No matter what their starting points, everyone can do maths!

As we develop this positive mental attitude towards maths, we’re shaping assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths.

They become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but also support them across the curriculum.

Maths is everywhere...

Maths as adults

Maths does not have to be sitting at a table and completing calculations!

Maths is everywhere and we use maths constantly; sometimes without realising it.

Try to be more aware of how often you use maths in your day to day life...money, time and measure (especially in the kitchen) are the most common ones but see what else you can think of!
