This week it is National Numeracy Day (Thursday 13th May 2020)

National Numeracy Day is all about recognising that numbers play a big part in all our lives and helping us improve our skills and build our confidence.

We have decided to celebrate National Numeracy Day over the week by having a grid of exciting Maths activities to complete throughout the week instead of our usual weekly maths PowerPoint. We had planned a maths week in school, which would have involved practical, interactive maths activities for the week and do not want the children to miss out on this completely!

We want you to have fun completing one or two activities during your maths time each day. Children can do these activities independently or with family members.

I have uploaded a grid for EYFS, KS1 & KS2 for you to work through this week. I have also added some more activities from the National Numeracy Day website for you to have a look at.

It would be lovely to see what you have been up to, to celebrate National Numeracy Day, so please send us pictures of your maths fun and Mrs Talbot will collate these into a dedicated 'Maths Good News' at the end of the week.

Enjoy!
