Maths Enrichment Day - The Miscalculation of Cap'n Half-Inch

 

Monday saw Quantum Theatre come to Howe Dell to present a play based around the four number operations and fractions to groups of Year 1&2 children and Year 3&4 children.  Feedback from both the children and staff was fantastic and overwhelmingly positive with staff saying that the children "were exposed to concepts they had not seen before, which was great" and praised the production for its fun element but also "great visuals".

 

See what it looked like and what the children had to say about it on the PowerPoint below.

 

Many thanks to all of you who supported the event with your contributions.

What was the thinking behind this project?

Aims

  • To inspire writing from a creative stimulus.
  • To use visual art and/or dance as a means of telling a story.
  • To learn from the Chinese culture in developing our knowledge of global traditions.

Day 1:  Into the World of the Nightingale. In Multi-purpose Hall

Based on the story of The Nightingale by Hans Christian Andersen.

Through a carefully structured workshop the pupils together with the facilitators will recreate the world of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale - The Nightingale. Set in China, the children will be taken on an exciting journey encountering different situations and characters including a visit to the Emperor’s Palace. Learn how to greet the Emperor, how to move like an Emperor and how to dance with Chinese fans and water sleeves. An exciting new experiential workshop led by the Yellow Earth education team. 

Day 2 : Lights, Screens and Magic:

This workshop introduces Chinese Shadow Puppetry, its history and origins, using examples of traditional Chinese shadow puppets. Then mixing puppetry, Beijing Opera movements and paper cutting, the children make their own “shadow puppets” and perform with them in a traditional Chinese tale.

 

Maths Week: 23-27 February 2015

"I never knew Maths could be so fun".

"I don't want Maths week to end - can we have another one soon?"

Were just some of the comments we received from the children.

The focus of the week was WORKING MATHEMATICALLY.

Our Maths week started on Monday and Tuesday with each class from Year 1 to Year 6 enjoying an extended PROBLEM SOLVING session in the hall provided by World Of Maths - some of the activities were extremely challenging but all of them were great fun!

Wednesday saw Years 1 to 4 on Mathletics, trying to gain a place on the Mathletics Leader Board. In the afternoon all of the school came together to enjoy and participate in carousel activities.

Magical Maths (who run an After School Club on a Monday) whizzed around every class from Reception upwards on Thursday, which proved to be an enormous success.

Finally, Friday was our Wear-A-Pattern-To-School Day, which resulted in lots of interesting combinations of stipes, spots, checks and colours.

What a GREAT WEEK with loads of WONDERFUL, ENRICHED MATHEMATICAL VOCABULARY!
