We had a fabulous day in Reception celebrating maths through art for Maths Day today. It was great to see the children coming to school in such creative costumes, excited about maths. We began the day with an assembly to show off our costumes and choose the best dressed. In Red class, dressed as the great mathematician Archimedes, the winner was Cosima. In Ruby class, dressed as a shop keeper with his very own homemade cash register, the winner was Bendeguz. Reception then wowed nursery, year 1 and year 2 with their ‘Doubles’ song. Back in Red class, learnt about who Archimedes was and what he was famous for. We did a simple experiment by placing a stone in a container of water as well as some equally large but lighter plastic insects in a separated container of water. We observed that the water level rose higher with the stone because it is heavier. Reception then spent the day doing maths through art using shapes. Ruby class looked at a famous painting by Kadinsky and replicated his circle art using watercolour paints. Red class used brightly coloured shapes to create an artwork inspired by Keet, they needed to think carefully about their placement of the shapes. Please come and see our artwork at the school open evening 3:30-5pm Tuesday 18th July.
