This year, the theme of our Maths Day has been “Maths in the Working World.” Children learned that there is a lot more to maths than addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. Whether people enjoy using maths or not, it is all around us. It is part of our everyday life and is used in a whole variety of jobs - hairdressing, business owner, footballer, musician, dancer, jewellery designers, game designers, weather presenters, bakers, pharmacists, chefs and so the list goes on!
Throughout the day, children took part in:
A huge thanks to all Volunteers within school during the day!
