The children had to use their knowledge of the properties of numbers and the formal written methods to solve several problems. Each time they solved a problem, they received part of the code to escape the room!
The children joined in a live lesson that has over 1500 pupils involved. They learned maths card tricks, number square tricks and how to visualise 3D images.
The children used their mathematical skills alongside movement and mindfulness in this very active and competetive competition linked to multiplication and division.
Wow, this was a competetive session. All children accross England competed on Timestable Rockstars to collect points for their teams. The competition was particularly fierce between Years 4 and 5 in school!!!
Children looked at everyday images and thought about where maths was involved. They realised that maths is involoved in most of the things we do.
