RLT Maths Day

This year's focus for the RLT Maths Day was 'no pens' - doing maths with no writing implements!


The children had a fantastic time exploring maths using different resources and recording their learning in different ways. The approach inspired lots of discussion and talk around the maths they were doing. Our youngest children in Aqua class explored making and creating 2D shapes with straight edges. Teal Class deepened their understanding of shape exploring the properties of different shapes, including exploring vertices, sides and faces. Year 5/6 in Cobalt class explored problem solving using resources to work out what they needed to do and to find the answers. 


All of the children reported having a great time in their maths lessons, and some even reflected that it made it easier to make mistakes, as you didn't have to rub things out or worry about being wrong. 


We joined with other RLT schools over Teams in the afternoon to share what we had learnt - it sounds like there were lots of creative maths activities going on in Rutland this week!
