Today was National Numeracy Day, a day when people around the country explore the fun and fascinating side of mathematics. Inspired by the mathematician, poet and rapper Harry Baker (check him out here), the Amethyst children made up their own maths raps! They came up with some fantastic lines: “10 into 30, that’s when you divide, The area is the value inside”, “To find the radius, halve the diameter, Times by 1000 to change the kilometer” and “Maths is important in your life, Like using a ruler to measure a knife” were just a few highlights. At the end, we performed our raps together as a class.
Here’s a rap that I made up:
We had such fun with the Amethyst crew, Rapping with maths is what we love to do!
Thank you all for such a great lesson!
