It’s beginning to look a lot like ChristMaths!

On Wednesday morning the EY&I campus was transformed into our very own shopping mall as the children created a ChristMaths Market.  Applying maths skills to practical situations can be challenging for children, which is a great reason for planning such an experience.

Every class from F2 – Y2 has been working as frantically as a Christmas elf to produce lots of wonderful goodies to sell. From mini ChristMaths trees to ChristMaths crackers, all the children have used their maths skills to make some wonderful decorations and festive treats. The children have been measuring ingredients for biscuits, describing and cutting Christmas shapes and sequencing paper chains. Some classes had also made some festive games to play. There was snowman bowling, a festive lucky dip and even a Christmassy photo booth!

The students were then given some very special ‘money’ to spend in the market and trade with the other children across their year groups. It was wonderful to see all the children interact so well with each other, using not only their maths skills but their manners too, as they purchased and sold their treats.

To top off a fantastic morning of trading, there was even a visit from Santa! Who came to spread even more festive cheer!

Well done to all the children and staff who helped to make it such a fantastic morning.
