P3’s Outdoor Maths

We have been working on counting, multiplying and dividing in our class lately. For Outdoor Learning Day we went outside to practise and develop our confidence with this.

First of all, we worked in 2 groups to count in 2, 5 and 10. When we got to a multiple of 2, 5 or 10 we had to do actions. The children decided on actions that would keep us warm!

Then, we were divided into 4 groups by evenly grouping the class. There were different items in the centre and one child at a time in each group had to run to collect an object. The objects were worth 2, 5 or 10 points. This meant the children had to multiply the amount of objects by the correct number. We were also able to divide our objects too but there were a few remainders. The children helped each other when the numbers were getting bigger.
