Fantastic news! Gwladys Street Community Primary and Nursery School has become a hub school in Liverpool for Maths of the Day.
Maths of the Day allows children to develop their basic skills in Mathematics through PE and other physical activities achieving key objectives from the New National Curriculum.
Follow this link to find out more about this great new resource https://www.mathsoftheday.org.uk/
Look out for images of this exciting new resource on our website and ask your child about their experiences.
We welcome other schools to contact us to see Maths of the Day in action.
Mathematics is also taught in the afternoon through topics linked to the curriculum where children can apply their skills to demonstrate a deeper understanding of mathematics.
Reasoning and Applying forms a large part of Mathematics at Gwladys Street as this is where children can demonstrate and apply their skills across all domains.
Have you received your child's FREE basic skills pack?
Every child when they start Foundation 2 (Reception) or join the school in year 1 or 2 receive a zip wallet full of practical resources to help develop their maths skills.
If you have lost yours then you can request a new one for £3.50 from the school office.
Log onto RM easi maths, Mathseeds or Mathletics and complete the challenges. The more you use it, the more rewards and certificates you will receive in school.
Each day in school, your child will work on their basic Maths skills for 15 minutes. At the end of the week they will demonstrate their understanding of a chosen task.
They have 3 stars pin badges to achieve, bronze, silver and gold. When they achieve them, please ask them to wear them to school daily so they can share their success.
Maths passports are sent home through the year so you can support your child. This can be done by playing simple games.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who attended the sessions. We had over 120 people supporting the three mornings with their children.
During these 3 mornings, everyone began the morning with a choice of breakfast before taking part in fun and active Maths activities developing Basic Skills and Application and Reasoning.
