Maths Fun in Third/Fourth Class

Third/Fourth class had great fun today with Origami Times Table Fortune Tellers.


After a bit of cutting and folding, the children were left with a fun resource to help test their friends on their tables with. Other hands-on maths activities during maths this week included using lollipop sticks to make groups and knock-out oral maths games.
