Here are some our Jackdaw's comments about our Maths Share Day:
The Maths Share day was a great opportunity to show all the parents what our teacher has taught us. To show them what we have learnt, the teachers set out activities for us and parents to do. One of the activities I did with people was a puzzle of weird numbers. It was so hard, we had to get someone who had already done it to help us.
The Apple in the Bag Fraction Puzzle (Brahmaguptha's Puzzle) - In this puzzle you had to find how many apples were in the bag and how many remained for the last person. The first thing we did was find a common denominator in this case 60 because it's a multiple of 3, 4 and 5. To get to 60 from 3 you times it by 20 so you do the same to the numerator (20/60) and you do the same to the rest so you get 20/60, 15/60 and 12/60. When add them together you get 47/60 that means 13 apples were left.
I was playing Colonel Conjecture in the play. I had to stay in a dark claustrophobic cupboard with Hayden who was playing Captain Convince. When Robert (the stage manager) knocked on the door I had to kick it open and rush out onto the stage. The best bit of the play was the look on Kayleigh's face as I kicked open the door!
The Maths day was so fun and I learnt a lot from it! I loved the play, it was all about our Maths superheroes, I was Classifying Casey. One of the Maths activities was a 'We Will Rock You' problem. We used the song 'We will Rock You' and the beat goes 'Tap Tap Clap Tap Tap Clap' then we had to work out the 100th beat i.e. whether it was a tap or a clap.
I did a role play with KS2. I was a little kid with Katie . We were figuring some sums out and we figured out that two odds make an even. Some Maths superheroes - Captain CC, OC and Super SG - helped us through everything.
