This week we've has an Olympic theme! It's been great. I was really excited when I found these clips http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01f9w5x . They are all about sports challenges and maths. So we watched the cycling track clip and then we went out onto the playground and skipped around a track where the children timed each other, they recorded their times into a table. We also did one where we threw beanbags onto the playground and measured the distance thrown with measuring tapes and trundle wheels! So some great outdoor learning with a bit of sport thrown in!

This week we have been recapping/consolidating odds and evens. One group went outside where number cards had been hidden and they had to find the cards. At first they found any card and then brought it back and sorted it onto an odd or even table. After we hid the cards again and they had to find only an odd number or an even number etc.
