Maths and Movement

For the last couple of weeks we have been experimenting with running, skipping and side galloping whilst we add, subtract, divide and multiply AT THE SAME TIME!

We have “played” games inside and outside with the aim to practise and improve our maths skills.

Students of 4A,

Which games have you enjoyed? Can you remember what it is was called? What equipment did it use? How has it helped to practise/improve your maths skills?

It makes sense that ‘maths and movement’ isn’t for everybody. If you haven’t enjoyed the games, what other parts of maths have you enjoyed lately?

I look forward to reading your comments. Remember to reply using our quality comment structure.

  1. Dear Mrs Miller,
    My favourite maths game was the chance percentages game where you gave us two things and we went to a percentage if they were linked. We should keep doing the outdoor maths because we get vitamin D, it is fun we all love it and putting maths in a more real situation.

  2. Dear Mrs Miller,
    I liked the maths movement games because it is a fun way to do maths. My favourite game was the one where there was 100 percent 50 percent and 0 percent. I liked it because I had to think what the chances are.

  6. Dear Mrs Miller,
    With maths and movment I really liked the game I can’t remember what it was called because it was energetic and fun. It only used hoops, chalk and balls. The game has not really improved my maths skills it’s just fun. I really like maths because it helps my learning and is awesome!

  7. Dear Mrs Miller,
    My favourite game was factor hoops.
    With the hoops and Mrs Miller counted down and if Mrs Miller called out the number 21 and if you were in a hoop that said 7 you get a point.

    I liked the game called factor hoops because I used strategies to win, I kept going on the number 9 because it is factors of a lot more numbers.

  9. Dear Mrs Miller,
    I enjoyed playing all the games on the basketball court because they improve my learning and it is a fun way to learn instead of working inside with a pencil and paper that’s why I think it is why I like working out side on the basketball court for maths.

    My favourite maths game that we have played is greedy pig it helps me learn chance and my addition. And you don’t need much aquipment to play, all you need is a dice, maths book and a pencil.
