Sums fun for stu­dents

Wanneroo Times - - Fit For Business -

GAMES, bingo and puz­zles added up to a fun week of maths for Con­nolly Pri­mary School stu­dents re­cently.

The school took park in Maths Week from May 22-26 to raise aware­ness of nu­mer­acy and en­cour­age stu­dents to en­joy maths.

Stu­dents took part in a va­ri­ety of maths ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing Place Value ac­tiv­i­ties, Paul Swan maths games, Place Value Bingo, Tan­grams and Bar­rier games.

The Kin­der­garten and Prepri­mary stu­dents en­joyed their an­nual puz­zle-a-thon, which in­volved break­fast, py­ja­mas and play­ing puz­zles to­gether.

Stu­dents also did a maths ac­tiv­ity with their buddy class through­out the week, where older stu­dents men­tored younger ones.

“Maths ac­tiv­ity week is about build­ing en­joy­ment of math­e­mat­ics,” as­so­ciate prin­ci­pal Robert Mar­shall said.

“Too many stu­dents de­velop anx­i­ety about maths and this ac­tiv­ity week serves to break down some of those bar­ri­ers.”
