Maths Day – Year 1, 2 and 3 – Maths in an enjoyable Way!

On Tuesday 23rd February a Maths day for years 1, 2 and 3 was organised at school.  During this activity students worked in very small groups and moved from one station to another.  There were six stations all focusing on different Maths Strands:

Station 1 – Students used the bee bot to practice directions.  Students had to programme the bee bot to make it move in different directions

Station 2 – Students played bingo!  But not ordinary bingo, students had to find one more or one less than the number shown

Station 3 – Students played dominoes, shape dominoes

Station 4 – students listened to a story called ‘When the doorbell rang’, but they also did lots of Maths as during the story they had to share biscuits amongst different children

Station 5 – Students used playdough to reinforce length – shorter, taller, longer

Station 6 – Students played a memory game using the clock

During all these activities students were enjoying themselves, playing games through hands on activities but lots of learning was taking place.   Hands on is minds on, busy hands busy minds.  Hands-on activities let the students’ minds grow and learn based on the experiences and the environment they are exposed to.
