Maths Fun with the Kinder classes!

On Friday 4th March another Maths day was organised at school but this time the Kindergarten 1 and 2 students participated.  In the early years there are no Maths lessons, but students learn Maths through play, through stories, through physical education etc.

During this Maths day kindergarten students practised their Maths skills through the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  First all students listened to the story, which was animated by an interactive story on the IWB and puppets.  Afterwards students practised counting and number recognition through a Physical education game where they had to choose a number card and then hop into hoops in order to reach the bowl filled with porridge.  Then students practised patterns, by helping Goldilocks choose her wallpaper pattern: students were given various pictures associated with the story and came up with different patterns.  One-to-one correspondence was also practised through Laying the table station, where students helped Goldilocks lay the table for herself and the three bears.  Finally students practised Small, Medium and Large when they helped the bears to put away their things:  students were shown various pictures showing objects in different sizes and they had to arrange them according to the size.

Students enjoyed themselves while practising various Mathematical skills, because Maths is fun!
